Conserving our Aboriginal culture

Malabar Headland National Park aims to manage Aboriginal sites with guidance from the La Perouse Local Aboriginal Land Council. Ongoing research and maintenance of an Aboriginal sites register within the park is a priority in Malabar.

Developing visitor facilities and experiences

NPWS will continue to improve and maintain visitor park facilities such as walking tracks, lookouts, day use facilities and signage.

Historic heritage in our parks and reserves

Malabar has a unique historic heritage, NPWS will continue to work towards protecting these areas from vandalism and investigate safe options for public access.

Managing fire

Fire will be managed in accordance with Living with Fire in NSW National Parks – A strategy for managing bushfires in national parks and reserves 2012-2021. A Reserve Fire Management Strategy will be prepared for Malabar Headland National Park and made available to the public.

Preserving biodiversity

The biodiversity of Malabar Headland National Park is protected by minimising the impacts of visitor use, weeds and pest animals, and regenerating important plant communities using local endemic species.

Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats

Pests and weeds have a significant impact on the ecosystems within Malabar Headland National Park. NPWS, in conjunction with the community group Friends of Malabar Headland, carries out regular works to protect biodiversity in this park.
