In this article, the author examines the adequacy of existing Queensland State legislation, and Commonwealth legislation, to protect the Daintree rainforest of Northern Queensland, in the wake of the Queensland Government decision to proceed with the building of a road through the area. Ms Lipman suggests, first, that the road construction may have been illegal under Queensland domestic legislation; and, secondly, that despite Commonwealth advice to the contrary, the Commonwealth Government does have legal power to intervene in this dispute.
