The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) consulted with members of the Joint Management Custodians Network through the Stage 1 Custodian workshops.

These workshops were part of the first stage of a 3-stage consultation process to develop a new model for Aboriginal joint management of NSW national parks. Consultation participants were members of the Custodians Network, who represent the 34 boards and committees currently partnering with NSW NPWS under a joint management agreement.

The report provides an overview of the consultation approach and a summary of the discussions with Custodians from across New South Wales.
