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.

Conservation program

Fox threat abatement plan

Since the fox was introduced to Australia in the 1870s, its impact on the environment has been negative. Foxes have contributed to the decline and extinction of a large range of native Australian animals.

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.

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.
