This Conservation Management and Cultural Tourism Plan was briefed by the NSW NPWS in order to provide conservation, management and interpretation guidance for the former Kinchega Station sites within the Kinchega National Park. Three specific historic precincts - the Kinchega Woolshed Complex; the Old Kinchega Homestead Complex; associated historical places - were designated within the Brief, and the NPWS requested that the Plan deal not only with the historic values of those sites, but also with the relevant Aboriginal and natural values.
During the course of preparation of the Plan, it became evident that since the entire Park was once part of Kinchega Station, that it would be more appropriate for the Plan to analyse, and provide policy recommendations, for the general Aboriginal, historic and natural values of the Park and to assess the Briefed sites in the context of those general values. As a consequence of this approach, the context and values of specific Aboriginal and historical sites were seen in the context of the broader cultural and natural values of the Park as a whole.
