Crescent Head Dog and Walkers Group started this petition to National Parks and Wildlife Service and

We seek to walk our dogs on Crown land and as they are a part of our family we believe they should be permitted to  join us at the beach when we picnic, fish or simply exercise.

We want to determine ownership of certain parcels of land and possibly seek re-gazettal  of some National Parks to Regional Parks.

We want to know with certainty where we can legally exercise our dogs both on and off-leash on our local beaches.

We want to stop revenue raising by NPWS.  The sign as you leave the main road and turn onto Richardsons Crossing says "No dogs including in cars".  A considerable number of people have reported receiving fines in excess of $300 per dog from NPWS staff because they have taken their dog/s onto Killick Beach at Richardsons Crossing and Back Beach at Crescent Head.  It is in fact legal as per NPWS website for a dog to travel in a car through a NP to get to a location outside the park, as long as they are not permitted to get out of the vehicle should the driver need to stop for example to use toilet facilities.  

We seek clarity of signage throughout our community.  It is very confusing to say the least.  Some signs list odd hours and certain months of the year.   Other signs like the one positioned at the beach end of Richardsons Crossing says "no dogs" allowed.  The sign is headed "Richardsons Crossing" and therefore visitors to our beach would assume no dogs were allowed there, however, the beach is called Killick Beach.

Families have accessed our local beaches for 120 years and should be permitted to continue to do so.  We do want to do this legally and safely for all concerned.
