Authorities have expressed dismay following a graffiti attack at Mount Bouddi, in Bouddi National Park, south of Terrigal, last weekend (2-3 April).

Graffiti vandalism at Bouddi National Park

National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Area Manager Angela Lonergan said the graffiti was sprayed over the Dingeldei Memorial Shelter in the day use area.

“It is disappointing to see the lack of respect shown to these public facilities,” Ms Lonergan said.

“These senseless attacks are unnecessary and cost taxpayer funds to repair.

“It is estimated it will cost approximately $1,800 to remove the graffiti. Money that could be better spent on maintaining the Park.

“Anyone who thinks they may have information about this incident is asked to contact the NPWS or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000,” Ms Lonergan said.

The Dingeldei Memorial Shelter was built in 1962 by local volunteers in honour of a former trustee of Bouddi National Park.
