Mount Grenfell Historic Site, Proposed Mount Grenfell National Park and Part 11 Land Plan of Management

The Mount Grenfell Historic Site and adjoining reserves are located about 70 kilometres north-west of Cobar in the dry back Country of the Cobar Peneplain — it is ‘red Country’.

The historic site was handed back to the Ngiyampaa Wangaaypuwan Aboriginal owners in July 2004 and leased back to the Minister under Part 4A of the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 (NPW Act). It is one of only seven reserves managed as lands of cultural significance to Aboriginal people under Schedule 14 of the NPW Act.

The Mount Grenfell Historic Site, Proposed Mount Grenfell National Park and Part 11 Land Plan of Management was prepared by the Mount Grenfell  Board of Management and is a significant landmark in the ongoing journey for Ngiyampaa People in reconnecting with Country and passing on traditional knowledge to the next generation. The plan will guide joint management of the reserves by the Board together with the NPWS.
