    Attention Australian Hammockers

    Hi all,

    Parks Tasmania is asking for feedback on their draft plan for the Walls Of Jerusalem National Park.

    I have submitted my thoughts, specifically requesting consideration of hanging areas for hammockers. Now I am not necessarily expecting them to listen but you never know unless you ask. In areas such as WoJ it would be nice to have a designated spot for hammockers in the designated camping areas. All that would be needed would be some suitable posts to hang from.

    Given that WoJ is only a short drive from my house I have vested interest . The more they hear from us though I would hope the more they will take it into consideration.

    I highlighted the low impact nature of hanging especially in sensitive areas, in my submission, and the growing popularity of hammocking in Australia and other less important areas of the world .

    Walls of Jerusalem Draft Plan.

    For those of you not from down here then these links will give you an idea of some of the special areas down here .

    Good luck. It would be great if the parks service do cater for hammocks in the area.

    I used to live close by too, 'The Walls' used to be my stomping ground, way back
    when the Temple Hut was still standing.......
    Mountain views are good for the soul....& getting to them is good for my waistline.
