Warrumbungle National Park

What we're doing

Park management activities

Warrumbungle 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

NPWS works to protect biodiversity in all parks, and Warrumbungle National Park is no exception. Revegetation programs are ongoing in this park, and can include seed propagation, tree planting, controlled ecological burning, extensive research and monitoring. Fencing and pest management strategies also take place within this park.

Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats

Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Warrumbungle National Park. NPWS carries out pig, fox, goat, wild dog and weed control as well as risk assessments for new and emerging weeds to protect biodiversity in this park.

Conservation program

Feral Animal Aerial Shooting Team (FAAST) training

The NSW government has an obligation to control feral animal populations in NSW national parks. One of the most effective and humane techniques for achieving this is aerial shooting, carried out by experts who have been accredited by the Feral Animal Aerial Shooting Team (FAAST) training program.

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

After-fire Warrumbungle National Park

The bushfires that ravaged Warrumbungle National Park in 2013 became the focus of a major research and recovery program by NSW National Parks. The program had multiple components including studies on fire behaviour, cultural heritage, soils and water, native Australian animals, vegetation and fire management, and included citizen science.
