Nymboi-Binderay National Park

What we're doing

Park management activities

Nymboi-Binderay 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

Nymboi-Binderay National Park is home to endangered species, and protecting these is key to upholding the park’s biodiversity. Species monitoring, management and other conservation activities are ongoing in this park.

Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats

Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Nymboi-Binderay National Park. NPWS carries out risk assessments for new and emerging weeds and works to control high priority weeds such as privet to protect biodiversity in this park.

Conservation program

Regional pest management strategies

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.

Historic heritage in our parks and reserves

Visitors to Nymboi-Binderay National Park can see and experience a range of historic sites and important remnants of NSW’s early timber industry. NPWS is committed to conserving and interpreting these assets, and their assessment, monitoring and management are ongoing.

Conserving our Aboriginal culture

Aboriginal culture is of great value to NPWS, and the condition of Aboriginal sites is reviewed and upgraded as required in Nymboi-Binderay National Park. NPWS works closely with the Gumbaynggir Aboriginal community and local Aboriginal land councils with regards to researching, acknowledging and maintaining Aboriginal heritage in this park, and Aboriginal cultural values are assessed and incorporated into park management decisions.

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.
