Australia is rich in its wildlife and natural heritage with trail weaving and recreational experience for the visitors. The park offers diverse flora and fauna with many species of birds. This report provides an overview of Nullarbor Park and its contemporary challenges and key attractions.
Nullarbor National Park is the world's largest semi-arid karst landscape and Regional Reserve (National Park and Wildlife Service, 2020). The park provides a sense of beauty. Nullarbor Park is a protected area located in the state of South Australia. Its area expands to 323 square kilometers by the proclamation of the Nullarbor Protection Area (South Australia, 2020). The region has very sparse vegetation. The area in the park has an extensive network of caves and underground cravens. The carven has cultural features associated with it such as painting. The area offers a scenic view of the ocean and Australia Marina bay Park.
Iso-Ahola's theory asserts personal escape motivates recreation and tourism (Snepenger, 2006).
Management of cave and karst in the Nullarbor Park is done by Karst Management association and Ministry of Environment and Water. Special management zone is classified for conserving and protection of natural and cultural features of the park and its aesthetic value. The Nullarbor Wilderness Protection was put forth in the year 2013 and is the largest wilderness protected area (Government of South Australia, 2019). It promotes the natural area and kart caves. The Nullarbor Regional Reserve facilitate the conservation of reserves and enable sustainable use of energy resources. The management plan ensures that allied activities such as hunting, collection of bush tucker, and coastal food are conducted sustainably. The Nullarbor Park is introduced as a regional reserve to enable multiple uses of land including activity, exploration. The management plan objectives are encouraging sustainable tourism enterprises and developing for better visitor experience (National Park and wildlife, 2016). Nature-based tourism plan through Nature-based Tourism Co-investment Fund for park management in Southern Australia to develop sustainable experiences.
Zoning- The classification as wilderness with primary areas resource protection with limited facilities embarked on Nullarbor Wilderness Park. This has increased the awareness of the tourist towards the area. The Nullarbor Wilderness Protection Area was declared in 2013 as the largest wilderness protection area in South Australia (Australia, 2020). The protection of natural area as it is significant due to endism among cave fauna. Placing wilderness in a protected area system reinforces the principle of wilderness and the need for intact areas as exercising of saving area and active management of wilderness value.
Environmental code of conduct- The conduct is determined for sensitivity to culture and heritage to the Aboriginal history of the National Park. The park is co-managed by the advisory committee and National Park Staff. The cultural protocol has restricted access for Traditional owners (Australia, 2020).
The collaboration involves the relationship between government, visitor, and local community for capital, knowledge, and expertise. The central government maintains the protection and development of the park. South Australia's park is protected with National Park and Wildlife Act and park management plan to maintain sustainable development and recommendation on improving the visitor experience. The major objectives of the government are in direction of conservation, accessibility, and community service, and responsible management. There are has visits of around 50000 people with visits to Bunda cliff lookout and Mirning country (National Park and wildlife service, 2020).
The impact of the loss of biodiversity will be severe in Australia and Nullarbor Park. The land clearing, warming ocean impact on the climate resulting in extreme heat pattern that creates a longer fire season (Ching, 2019). The rising seas level and temperature change globally impact the extreme weather and create a displacement of travel plans (Hall, 2010). Natural wilderness is an attraction with viewable activities listed will be restricted with loss of biodiversity. The impact of marine and water-level declines the whale experience one of the major attractions of the Nullarbor National Park. The National Park will be impacted by the rising temperature and attraction on whale watching and camping activities. The climate change s resulted in the marine heatwave that has a devastating impact on ocean species and results in the loss of marine species. The bush fire had negatively impacted the tourism in Southern Australia and threat to National Park.
Nullarbor National Park with its vast landscape and aboriginal culture history is an attractive tourism visit. The development of the park is managed by the South Australia National Park Service. The management plan is developed for restriction on activities to protect wildlife reserve and marine animals. The frequent climate change and loss of biodiversity have an impact on the warmer weather and life and composition decline in the park area.
