What we're doing

Park management activities

Sea Acres 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 geology, special landscapes and natural assets of Sea Acres National Park, and programs to protect and preserve its geology, waterways and unique ecosystems are in place. NPWS encourages research into the park’s geology and geomorphic processes, and works to protect relevant sites wherever possible. Visitor interpretation and education is an ongoing priority in this park.

Preserving biodiversity

Sea Acres National Park embraces efforts to support the biodiversity of its flora and fauna. Conservation programs operate within this park and may include research studies, pest management strategies, weed control, monitoring of visitor impacts and fire management planning. NPWS liaises with Hastings Council and other relevant authorities on issues affecting the biodiversity of the park.

Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats

Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Sea Acres National Park. NPWS carries out risk assesments for new and emerging weeds as well as Bitou bush and boneseed management to protect biodiversity in this park.

Developing visitor facilities and experiences

NPWS works to increase opportunities for people to visit and enjoy our national parks and reserves, including Sea Acres National Park. To reflect this, the park hosts regular events to appeal to the local community and engage their interest in national parks.

Conserving our Aboriginal culture

Sea Acres National Park is dedicated to preserving its rich Aboriginal heritage. The condition of the park’s cultural sites is regularly assessed and carefully managed, and NPWS works closely with the Birpai Aboriginal Land Council to ensure this. The park works to educate visitors through interpretive exhibitions and displays, which are maintained and upgraded 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.
