Brian Everingham repeated Tim Low as saying :
>" If Tim Low is to be believed the design of national parks in the past was intentionally to create islands of nature, set apart from the surrounding countryside, so that outside influences such as feral pests, could be kept to a minimum."

 Hey, someone just has to be dreaming !  In most cases the only reason any land was left at all for National and Conservation Parks is that earlier farming communities found those areas just too difficult, or just too uneconomical, to develop as farmland.
