What we're doing

Park management activities

Yuraygir 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:

Conserving our Aboriginal culture

NPWS works cooperatively with local Aboriginal communities. Ongoing programs are in place to support this relationship in Yuraygir National Park, with continuing efforts to preserve the park’s cultural values for future generations.

Preserving biodiversity

Yuraygir National Park is committed to upholding biodiversity and does this by protecting rare, vulnerable, threatened and endangered species. Cooperative conservation programs are regularly carried out in this park, and include surveying, data collection on species distribution and population, weed control activities and systematic fire ecology inventories. Local community groups are regularly engaged in conservation efforts.

Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats

Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Yuraygir National Park. NPWS carries out risk assessments for new and emerging weeds as well pest reduction of foxes, wild dogs, cane toads and bitou bush to protect biodiversity in this park.

Developing visitor facilities and experiences

NPWS works to promote positive experiences in NSW national parks. To ensure visitor safety, comfort and enjoyment, all facilities in Yuraygir National Park are regularly maintained, upgraded or developed as required. The park regularly reviews its processes and systems, implementing new ideas and technologies as appropriate to ensure ease of access and optimal visitor experiences. Maintenance programs are ongoing.
