Bouddi National Park

What we're doing

Park management activities

Bouddi 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:

Preserving biodiversity

Bouddi National Park embraces efforts to support the biodiversity of its flora and fauna. Field studies and periods of concentrated surveying are carried out in this park in order to maintain this.

Conservation program

Bush regeneration volunteering program

From mountain rainforests and coastal dunes, to bird-filled wetlands and eucalyptus forests, important bush regeneration work is being carried out across NSW.

Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats

Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Bouddi National Park. Risk assessments for new and emerging weeds are carried out as an ongoing initiative within this park. As a priority of NPWS, the management of weeds such as bitou bush and boneseed along with pest management of foxes and wild dogs are an important part of the work undertaken in Bouddi to protect the integrity of biodiversity which exists in the area.

Conservation program

Bitou bush threat abatement plan

Bitou bush poses a serious and widespread threat to threatened species populations and ecological communities on the NSW coast. The NPWS bitou bush threat abatement plan helps to reduce the impact of weeds at priority sites using control measures such as ground spraying, aerial spraying, biological control and physical removal.

Developing visitor facilities and experiences

Bouddi National Park undertakes regular maintenance of its facilities. Replacement and installation of infrastructure around barbecues, picnic and sheltered areas takes place in this park. Improvements to information signage are also a priority.

Conservation program

Tour guide and visitor services volunteer program

When you sign up to volunteer for tour guiding and visitor services, you’ll be doing something for yourself as well as for the benefit of visitors to NSW national parks.

Conserving our Aboriginal culture

Aboriginal culture is of great value to NPWS, and the conditions of Aboriginal sites and assets are monitored and upgraded as required in Bouddi National Park. In doing this, NPWS works in conjunction with local Aboriginal communities wherever possible.

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

Planning for fire

Bushfires are inevitable across fire-prone vegetation types within NSW national parks. NPWS prepares for wildfires by working with other fire agencies, reserve neighbours and the community to ensure protection of life, property and biodiversity. Every park has its own fire management strategy, devised in consultation with partner fire authorities and the community to plan and prioritise fire management.

Bouddi bushcare

Bouddi bushcare

Bouddi National Park’s natural coastline is under threat from invasive weeds. If you’re interested in helping to restore the native vegetation along this section of NSW coast, then volunteer to join a local bushcare group. Work is carried out in various sections of the park, including MacMasters Beach.
