Kakadu wins ei­ther way

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NATION -

KAKADU Na­tional Park in the Top End will get a sig­nif­i­cant fund­ing boost no mat­ter which po­lit­i­cal party is in power after this year’s fed­eral elec­tion. But Op­po­si­tion Leader Bill Shorten, who has pledged $220 mil­lion for the World Her­itage-listed site if La­bor wins gov­ern­ment this year, says his party’s funds will help “res­cue” the park quicker than the gov­ern­ment would.

Mr Shorten’s visit to Jabiru fol­lows Prime Min­is­ter Scott Mor­ri­son’s, who on Sun­day an­nounced a $216 mil­lion pack­age to im­prove roads and tourist fa­cil­i­ties.
