Garigal National Park has a wide variety of vegetation, and serves as a refuge for native plants and animals including many threatened and uncommon species. It also includes several significant Aboriginal sites and historic places, including the Bantry Bay explosives magazine complex. This makes it an important area for environmental education. It is also an important recreational resource and provides the opportunity for experiencing “the bush” close to the centre of Sydney.

This plan of management was originally adopted by the Minister for the Environment on 24 November 1998. It was amended in accordance with the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 on 9 December 2013. These amendments are incorporated into this plan.
