What’s this about?

The Aboriginal heritage, biodiversity, and ecosystems of Dharawal National Park, Dharawal Nature Reserve, and Dharawal State Conservation Area are exceptionally well conserved and the water quality is very high. With the growing urbanisation of surrounding areas, there are increasing pressures on the special values of these parks.

The new draft plan of management recognises the significant cultural values of the parks and supports the Aboriginal community in caring for Country and maintaining connection to Country. The plan's key focus is to maintain the current high water quality and considerable value of the parks as a wildlife corridor.

The plan continues to provide for low-impact, self-reliant visitor activities, supported by small-scale visitor facilities at appropriate locations on the edges of the parks.

The draft plan of management for the parks is currently on public exhibition.
