Return of Kings Run Shows Community Leadership

Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens' Leader

The return of the late, great Geoff King's takayna property to Aboriginal ownership is both an historic moment and an important step towards ensuring Geoff's legacy of care for that extraordinary, wild coastline lives on.

Geoff King gave his life to protecting the culturally rich landscape his family long owned from damage and vandals, often putting himself at personal risk to do so.

In Estimates today, the Premier refused to commit to the return of lands in this term of government and refused to reverse the Liberals' ill-thought policy to open up tracks in the culturally priceless Tarkine region.
