Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park

Park management

This park was created in December 1894. It covers an area of 14,977 hectares.

Management documents

You'll find a lot more information about this park in its management plans. In particular, plans of management contain a large amount of information on the natural environments, Aboriginal heritage, history, and recreational opportunities in a particular park. Fire management strategies outline when and how hazard reduction will be carried out in key areas of the park.

Many types of management plans go through a formal draft stage where they are open for public comment. The plans are only finalised and put into effect after all public submissions have been considered.

Bush regeneration

If you're tired of seeing weeds take over native bushland, why not come and help fight them? You can join rangers and other volunteers in the park bush regeneration program. Generally, you'll be helping to get rid of weeds and replace them with locally native plants. It's a good way of putting something back into this beautiful area - and if you come along, you're bound to discover a few areas of the park you haven't seen before.

This year, volunteers helped to restore the native bushland in various parts of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. They also got the opportunity to visit nearby reserves which are generally less accessible to visitors - like Muogamarra, Lion Island and Spectacle Island nature reserves.

Park staff often run introductory training courses on bush regeneration - see Upcoming events for more details.
