Mimosa Rocks National Park
What we're doing
Park management activities
Mimosa Rocks 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:
Mimosa Rocks National Park supports efforts to monitor, help recover and secure threatened populations. The area targets pest impacts and works to limit disturbance from recreational users. NPWS is committed to maintaining the park’s biodiversity of flora and fauna. Field studies and concentrated surveying activities are carried out in order to maintain this, and to protect and conserve native wildlife, such as koalas.
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
Mimosa Rocks National Park is rich in biodiversity, and pests and weeds can have an impact on this sensitive park value. Pest reduction is a priority to manage species which threaten this reserve, and ongoing risk assessment takes place to identify new and emerging weeds. This plays an important part of the work NPWS does to protect this park for the future.
Wild dogs can have significant impacts on other animals and are regarded as pests. Our wild dog control program operates in many NSW national parks and reserves. When carrying out such pest control, we aim to minimise the wild dogs’ effects on livestock and wildlife, while still maintaining dingo conservation in key areas.
Developing visitor facilities and experiences
Mimosa Rocks National Park maintains its facilities and infrastructure to ensure optimal visitor experiences. NPWS regularly reviews the park’s amenities, accommodation and recreational offerings to identify areas for improvement or upgrading. The community is consulted on changes to culturally or historically significant assets. NPWS regularly assesses its processes and systems in this park, implementing new ideas and technologies as appropriate.
Conserving our Aboriginal culture
Mimosa Rocks National Park proudly acknowledges its Aboriginal cultural heritage. While working to promote public understanding and appreciation of these values, NPWS ensures the park’s cultural sites are appropriately supported and conserved. NPWS collaborates with local Aboriginal land councils in co-managing park projects, supports cultural tourism initiatives and works with Aboriginal Partnership programs to maintain sufficient protection for cultural heritage sites.
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.

We're looking for volunteers to help recover threatened species of shorebirds in the NSW Far South Coast’s Mogareeka area. Join NSW National Parks in this important volunteer work to monitor and survey breeding birds, restore habitat and educate beachgoers on the birds’ breeding sites - near Mimosa Rocks, Ben Boyd and Bournda national parks.
