Nightcap National Park
What we're doing
Park management activities
Nightcap 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:
NSW National Parks Visitor Infrastructure Program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is undertaking a range of projects to enhance visitor facilities and create new, iconic visitor experiences in our national parks. These projects aim to increase nature-based tourism in NSW, to boost regional visitor economies and improve community wellbeing.
Nightcap National Park observes and supports the plant and animal species within its borders. Efforts to minimise the impacts of threats are ongoing within this park and include frequent monitoring and pest management. NPWS is committed to plant and animal conservation, and protects threatened, vulnerable and endangered species within all NSW national parks.
Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats
Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Nightcap National Park. NPWS carries out risk assesments for new and emerging weeds as well as cane toad and wild dog control to protect biodiversity in this park.
Developing visitor facilities and experiences
NPWS is committed to providing numerous high-quality facilities for visitors to enjoy in all its parks. Park visitors are well catered for, and the park’s recreational facilities are frequently reviewed, with opportunities examined for future amendments.
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.
