What’s this about?

Parks and reserves established under the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 need to have a plan of management. The plan includes information on important reserve values and provides directions for future management.

Once adopted, the Central Mallee Reserves draft plan of management will replace the existing plan which was adopted in 1996. 

Key issues addressed in the plan include:

  • continuing conservations of the largest area of mallee woodland within a NSW protected area
  • enabling the establishment of a 40,000-hectare feral predator-free area within Yathong Nature Reserve
  • ongoing protection and conservation of the reserves' significant natural values, including malleefowl, red-lored whistler, striated grasswren and other threatened species
  • continuing to support Ngiyampaa community access to Country to maintain, renew or develop cultural connections and practices, and manage cultural values in the reserves
  • managing shared heritage values consistent with their assessed level of significance.

Public exhibition of the draft plan will provide members of the community with the opportunity to have a say in the management directions for the reserves.
