An Important Announcement from the Federal Government


In September 1998, in the lead up to the federal elections, Tony Abbott issued this press release, announcing the Howard Government’s creation of the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust.

Mr. Abbott, who attended the announcement ceremony on September 5 at Chowder Bay, said this in his press release:

“Ever since…Labor….announced that it was selling military land on North Head and Middle Head, I have been campaigning to save the last unspoilt headland on Sydney Harbour.”

“Future generations will regard this as a visionary moment. I am proud to belong to a government which has put long term environmental interests ahead of the short term monetary focus…”
