Abstract

As in years to come the National Park will probably
be of considerable interest to natural history students, a
brief resume of its foundation may be considered worthy
of placing on record. Several years ago Mr. W. Crooke drew attention to the advisability of forming a reserve at Mount Field.
Meetings and deputations were organised, and a special
association, known as the National Park Association, was
formed, in order to support the plan for a National Park.
