Radiata Plateau is an original forest region in the Blue Mountain area of the new state, where there are some habitats that are on the verge of extinction. In the near future, new state government bought the 300-hectare garden area and incorporated it into the new state park protection system.

Local environmentalists have lobbied for decades to protect the last untapped peninsula, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. The land will now be incorporated into the new state park reserve system.

Although it said that the sale of the land was a trade secret, it was reported that earlier this year, the land had been owned by a family for nearly half a century, and an advertisement of $2.8 million was posted.

`He has received hundreds of letters from the Blue Mountain Protection Association, which has been lobbying the government for the protection of the land near Katoomba for 35 years,` said Matt Kan, an environment administrator.

Mr. Keane said: "In the hundreds of letters I have received, it is known that the Radiata area is popular. Many local residents, forest hikers, climbers and bird watchers follow the mountain road."

Once the agreement has been reached, he said, the National Park and Wildlife Service will develop a plan to protect and access it.

He said: "In recent months, new state government has been trying to acquire this private property to ensure that the area is protected and the public can continue to enjoy it."

Protective species living in the original forest area are known to include bagboards, turquos, and black ladders used by indigenous people, as well as Flames and various parakeet species.

"One thing is clear that the new owner will have great privilege and honor to enjoy and manage this beautiful, historic and important Australian plot," Theo Poulos Real Estat declared on sale.

The Blue Mountain Protection Association has warned the development of environmental damage that will lead to the loss of natural protection in the region.

The Labour Party announced that it would seek to buy the Radiata Plateau and convert it to a national park before the defeat of the March state elections.

Local Labour councillor Doyle (Trish Doyle) and councillor Mallard (Shayne Mallard), a Liberal Party living in the nearby House of Lords, called on government to protect the area.

"ensuring that the Radiata Plateau area is protected from developers has been a goal of the local community and is now a reality," Mallard said.
