Wilderness areas are the most pristine areas in New South Wales. They form an essential component of our national parks system and are important for mitigating the impacts of climate change on biodiversity.

This report was put on public exhibition in 2010 to seek feedback on the proposed Curracabundi Declared Wilderness. The Curracabundi Wilderness Area was declared in 2011.

The Wilderness Act 1987 provides a mechanism for New South Wales to identify where these areas are and, for selected lands, to ensure they are declared and managed in a way that protects their wilderness values.
