Wolli Creek Regional Park
What we're doing
Park management activities
Wolli Creek Regional 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:
NPWS is committed to protecting all native species, and regeneration and conservation programs operate within Wolli Creek Regional Park. Natural heritage features are protected, managed and interpreted, and recreation facilities are upgraded, where required. Efforts to minimise the impact of threats to the park’s biodiversity are ongoing.
Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats
Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Wolli Creek Regional Park. NPWS carries out risk assesments for new and emerging weeds to protect biodiversity in this park.
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.
Developing visitor facilities and experiences
By providing quality visitor facilities and conserving park landscapes, NPWS works to increase opportunities for people to visit and experience Wolli Creek Regional Park. Park staff work to encourage public enjoyment of the area and its bushland. Walking tracks and trails are maintained and environmental enhancement programs are ongoing.
Conserving our Aboriginal culture
Aboriginal cultural heritage is of great value to NPWS. Ongoing projects are in place in Wolli Creek Regional Park to audit, monitor and maintain the condition of its cultural sites and assets. Working with local councils and Aboriginal communities, NPWS works to protect, maintain and interpret all items of significance.
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.
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.
