Washpool National Park
What we're doing
Park management activities
Washpool 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:
Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats
Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Washpool National Park. NPWS carries out risk assesments for new and emerging weeds as well as wild dog control to protect biodiversity in this park.
Exploring World Heritage
NPWS strives to protect and conserve all NSW national parks, including Washpool National Park. Part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, this special park features a wealth of spectacular wilderness, the World Heritage values of which are painstakingly protected and preserved for the enjoyment of future generations.
Developing visitor facilities and experiences
Washpool National Park is committed to keeping its visitors safe and informed, and this extends to the matters of access and signage. Maintenance of park infrastructure, including directional signage and access points, is ongoing within this park.
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.
