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.

Friends of the Colo

Friends of the Colo is a community-based conservation group, formed in 2000 to help eradicate willows along the Colo River and its tributaries in Wollemi National Park. Volunteer activities include:

  • 'Willows out of Wollemi' trips, travelling down the Colo in canoes and inflatable rafts. Volunteers map and treat willows, and map out other infestations of weeds. The annual trips are usually held in March or April, and cover a five-day period.
  • Walk-in trips into Wollemi National Park, to assess the positive impacts of the group's activities.
  • Working in the group's nursery, in Blue Mountains National Park at Glenbrook. Volunteers plant seeds, pot out seedlings and look after the thousands of plants being propagated there. There are people working at the nursery several weekends a month.
  • Bush regeneration in Wollemi and Blue Mountains national parks.
