Coffs Coast Regional Park
What we're doing
Park management activities
Coffs Coast Regional 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:
Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats
Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Coffs Coast Regional Park. Risk assessments for new and emerging weeds are carried out as an ongoing initiative within the park. Pest management of foxes and coastal weeds is a priority and an important part of the work NPWS does to protect the integrity of biodiversity which exists within Coffs Coast.
The fox threat abatement plan addresses the long-standing threat of foxes to biodiversity. By implementing fox control measures in 59 sites throughout NSW, the plan protects threatened species and works to minimise the potential of foxes to cause future extinctions.
Historic heritage in our parks and reserves
The Coffs Coast has been a much-loved, beach-side holiday destination since the early 1900s. Sea and beach cultural values are recognised and valued in the park and maintained for locals and visitors.
Developing visitor facilities and experiences
Ongoing assessment and upgrades of visitor facilities within Coffs Coast Regional Park are a priority for maintenance of this park. NPWS aims to liaise with all new park neighbours for any new additions within Coffs Coast, and prioritise the signage installations to enrich the visitor experience wherever possible.
Conserving our Aboriginal culture
Protection and interpretation of Aboriginal culture and heritage is of high significance in Coffs Coast Regional Park. Working with Gumbaynggirr Aboriginal Community is a high priority, in particular with the Garlambirla Guuyu Girrwa (Coffs Harbour Elders) and Garby Elders, so that traditional knowledge is incorporated into the management of this park.
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.
