Morton National Park strategy for walking and camping in the Budawangs

The Office of Environment and Heritage has a strategy to manage the impacts of wilderness walking and camping in the Budawangs area of Morton National Park.

It was prepared in response to increasing concern about visitor impacts and recognition of the need to ensure that use is sustainable. The Strategy describes the Budawangs' conservation values, issues, use patterns, impacts, legislative background and management works undertaken. It sets out NPWS requirements for use of the area including limits on group size, cave camping and wood fires.

The Strategy also describes management policies regarding track management, signage and camping areas and includes a number of actions related to education, environmental protection and monitoring.
