Murray Valley National Park

What we're doing

Park management activities

Murray Valley 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:

Understanding landscapes and geology

NPWS is dedicated to preserving the special landscapes and natural assets of Murray Valley National Park. Programs to protect and preserve its waterways, Ramsar-listed wetland, forest environments and unique ecosystems are in place within the park.

Developing visitor facilities and experiences

NPWS is dedicated to providing outstanding facilities and experiences for visitors to all NSW national parks. Amenities in Murray Valley National Park, including national park accommodation, picnic areas, tracks, trails, boardwalks and other facilities, receive ongoing maintenance 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.

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.
