What we're doing

Park management activities

Wyrrabalong 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

Wyrrabalong National Park upholds its biodiversity by protecting vulnerable, threatened and endangered species. Conservation activities are carried out in this park and include surveys and data collection on species distribution and population.

Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats

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

Conservation program

Bitou bush threat abatement plan

Bitou bush poses a serious and widespread threat to threatened species populations and ecological communities on the NSW coast. The NPWS bitou bush threat abatement plan helps to reduce the impact of weeds at priority sites using control measures such as ground spraying, aerial spraying, biological control and physical removal.

Developing visitor facilities and experiences

Maintaining Wyrrabalong National Park’s visitor facilities is an NPWS priority. Programs relating to the upkeep and enhancement of the park’s lookouts, tracks, trails and other offerings are ongoing.
