Bouddi National Park is 1532 hectares and covers a large portion of the Bouddi Peninsula from Wagstaffe in the west to MacMasters beach in the north-east. It includes an area known as the 'Bouddi Marine extension', which encompasses 287 hectares of ocean floor and overlying offshore waters between Gerrin Point and Third (Bombi) Point, including the Maitland Bombora. More than 70 Aboriginal sites containing more than 200 objects have been recorded in the park and nearby areas.

The plan of management provides for sustainable visitor use and enjoyment and protects the park's cultural and natural values. Nature-based recreational activities undertaken in the park include bushwalking, mountain biking and rock climbing.

This is the second plan for the Bouddi National Park and replaces the 1985 plan.
