This plan talks about a special part of the Country of the Bundjalung of Byron Bay (Arakwal) people know as Tyagarah Nature Reserve.
The reserve is an important part of Country to the Arakwal and to other Bundjalung because it is a place of spiritual and cultural significance.
As an outcome of the second Indigenous land use agreement (ILUA 2) between the Arakwal and the NSW Government, a Management Committee has been established. The committee covers the NPWS Byron Coast Area, including Tyagarah Nature Reserve, and enables joint management of the reserve by NPWS and the Arakwal. Joint management provides a continuing role for the Arakwal in looking after Country.
