Budderoo National Park
What we're doing
Park management activities
Budderoo National Park has management strategies in place to protect and conserve the values of this park. Visit the OEH website for detailed park and fire management documents. Here is just some of the work we’re doing to conserve these values:
Budderoo National Park is resolute in its commitment to conserving land, minimising weeds and protecting native vegetation. The park supports ongoing NPWS and volunteer efforts to maintain biodiversity.
Uniting technology with the vast collection of information on biodiversity in NSW, BioNet is a valuable database open to any user. From individual plant sightings to detailed scientific surveys, it offers a wealth of knowledge about ecology and threatened species in NSW.
Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats
Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Budderoo National Park. Risk assessments for new and emerging weeds are carried out as an ongoing initiative within the park. Pest management is an important part of the work NPWS does to protect the integrity of biodiversity which exists within Budderoo.
Developing visitor facilities and experiences
Budderoo National Park undertakes regular maintenance of its facilities to ensure they are up to date and safe for visitors to use. Hazard assessments and facilities upgrades are regularly carried out in this park, and priority actions are implemented both in the park itself and in Minnamurra Rainforest Centre.
NSW is one of the most bushfire prone areas in the world as a result of our climate, weather systems, vegetation and the rugged terrain. NPWS is committed to maintaining natural and cultural heritage values and minimising the likelihood and impact of bushfires via a strategic program of fire research, fire planning, hazard reduction, highly trained rapid response firefighting crews and community alerts.
Managing fire-prone NSW national parks requires a three-pronged approach, including fire planning, community education, and fuel management. When it comes to fuel like dead wood, NPWS conducts planned hazard reduction activities like mowing and controlled burning to assist in the protection of life, property and community.
