 I didn't stress that Nadgee is a Faunal Reserve, because it has been stressed many times in the magazine, and those interested in such matters know it. Nor was it relevant to my theme, which was that the tide of exploitation (or "development") as we like to call it) spreading along the coast from Sydney and Melbourne had, as yet, barely lapped the South-east corner. If it were not for its remoteness and lack of good soil, Nadgee mould have been alienated, cleared, and perhaps subdivided, before now. And then there -wouldn't have been Buckley's chance of having it made a Faunal Reserve. I didn't stress that Nadgee is a Faunal Reserve, because it has been stressed many times in the magazine, and those interested in such matters know it.

 As it is it will be developed as a park. The first job will be to clear the old timber road in from Ebrrika Creek. At a later stage the road will be tar sealed. And the time may come when a high speed road will be carved through it (as through National Park) so that tourists can enjoy its beauties without letting up on the accelerator. Tracks must be cut, shelter sheds erected and, possibly a bit later, kiosks, bathing sheds, hostels and other facilities provided. As Allen says, manpower and money will be needed (he doesn't mention the bulldozers, but they will be there). I don't think the lack of money will hold up these improvements for long. Nei- could any "vigilance" on my part prevent it. Once these places are publicised the money is found (e g. Kanangra). That is why I advise walkers to go soon, before the roads, tracks and buildings are constructed. As it is it will be developed as a park.
