Annan River (Yuku Baja-Muliku) National Park Management Statement 2013

Annan River (Yuku Baja-Muliku) National Park is jointly managed in perpetuity by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) and the Yuku Baja-Muliku Land Trust.

The aspirations and cultural responsibilities of the Traditional Owners of the area are recognised and reflected in park management.

The park is managed to protect its wetlands systems, riparian habitats, woodlands and the semi-evergreen vine thickets of the Dowling Range.

Species of cultural significance such as red-tailed Burdekin plum Pleiogynium timorense and species of ecological significance including the Bennett's tree kangaroo Dendrolagus bennettianus are protected within the park.

Access to places of cultural significance within Annan River (Yuku Baja-Muliku) National Park is guided by the Yuku Baja-Muliku Land Trust.

Conservation purpose

Annan River (Yuku Baja-Muliku) National Park was gazetted on 8 September 2006, to conserve the diversity of lowland vegetation types including the marine wetlands system—the Annan River wetlands—eucalypt woodlands and the semi-evergreen vine thickets of the Dowling Range.

The park also conserves many places and species of cultural significance to the Traditional Owners of the area. The Yuku Baja-Muliku Land Trust and QPWS aim to cooperatively manage the national park so the lands and culture stay healthy for the benefit of all people.
