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 detailed park and fire management documents. Here is just some of the work we’re doing to conserve these values:

Preserving biodiversity

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.

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.

Conservation program

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 wild dog pest control, we aim to minimise the impact that they have on livestock and domestic pets, while 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.

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.
