Preparing for the Biennial K’gari (Fraser Island) Conference

Getting Together on K’gari

FINIA was founded on K’gari in 2005 and meeting on the island at least once a year has become an important part of the group’s calendar.  Aside from the opportunity to spend some time looking at the issues and progress on-ground, it also provides an opportunity for us to renew our commitment to the island, share knowledge, meet new partners and discuss approaches as we face emerging challenges – like myrtle rust and visitor management.  The 2019 trip, held on 7-8 May, was no exception.
