Murrumbidgee Valley National Park
What we're doing
Park management activities
Murrumbidgee 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.
Understanding landscapes and geology
Murrumbidgee Valley National Park protects the landscapes within its borders, from its bushland to its waterways and everything in between. Management projects are in place to ensure this protection, and park infrastructure receives ongoing rehabilitation and maintenance works as required. Visitors are able to fully enjoy the park’s attractions, as the amenities surrounding them are well tended to.
Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats
Pests and weeds are a significant threat to the ecosystems within Murrumbidgee Valley National Park, and pest management is a priority for NPWS. Supplementary Pest Control takes place in Murrumbidgee Valley National Park, as well as the implementation of prioritised pest management strategies. Ongoing risk assessment for new and emerging weeds is a priority for this park to reduce the ongoing threat to this park's biodiversity values.
Weeds and pest animals cause substantial damage to agriculture and our environment, so it’s essential we manage them in NSW national parks and reserves. Our regional pest management strategies aim to minimise the impact of pests on biodiversity in NSW. We work hard to protect our parks and neighbours from pests and weeds, ensuring measurable results.
Developing visitor facilities and experiences
NPWS is dedicated to providing outstanding facilities and experiences for visitors to all NSW national parks. Amenities in Murrumbidgee Valley National Park, including park accommodation, tracks, trails and ramps, receive ongoing maintenance and are upgraded where required.
Conserving our Aboriginal culture
Murrumbidgee Valley National Park boasts a proud legacy of Aboriginal culture. Ongoing NPWS programs exist to access and preserve this important heritage, and NPWS fosters partnerships with local Aboriginal communities to best explore opportunities within the park and facilitate such preservation.
