Wollemi National Park

What we're doing

Park management activities

Wollemi 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:

Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats

Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Wollemi National Park. NPWS carries out risk assesments for new and emerging weeds as well as fox control to protect biodiversity in this park. Remote area weeding is carried out by some extremely dedicated volunteers.

Wild dog control program

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.

Exploring World Heritage

Part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, the spectacular landscapes of Wollemi National Park are carefully protected and preserved through a range of NPWS strategies. Educational initiatives and long-term conservation projects are in place in this park. NPWS welcomes community input and works to identify, protect, conserve, present, transmit to future generations and, where necessary, rehabilitate the park’s World Heritage values.

Vegetation, fire and climate change in Greater Blue Mountains Area

With its fire-sensitive Gondwana rainforests and fire-prone sclerophyll plants, the World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains Area is one of the most flammable environments on earth. Because of this, for management purposes, the area now has one of the most comprehensive fire regime analyses in the world.

Developing visitor facilities and experiences

NPWS works to promote positive experience in NSW national parks. To ensure optimal safety, comfort and enjoyment for visitors, the tracks and trails in Wollemi National Park are regularly maintained, upgraded or developed as required.

Managing fire

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.

Conservation program

Hazard reduction program

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.
