The escarpment parks protect the habitat and support viable populations of many different species of native plants and animals because of their large size and undisturbed nature. They include caves and other karst environments that provide a significant geomorphological resource in addition to providing habitats for a diversity of cave-living animals.

Monga National Park, Wadbilliga National Park and Deua National Park contain extensive areas of wilderness as well as recreation facilities such as picnic areas, campgrounds and walking tracks.

This plan of management was originally adopted by the Minister for the Environment on 11 January 2011. It was amended in accordance with the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 on 10 February 2014. The amendments incorporated into this plan were to enable a trial of horse riding on two identified routes through wilderness in Deua and Monga National Parks for a period of two years.
