The Macquarie Marshes are one of the largest remaining inland semi-permanent wetlands in southeastern Australia and are of international importance. The nature reserve samples all the habitat types present in the Marshes and is a major waterbird breeding area, an important refuge for a large number of other wildlife species and has significant cultural values.

This plan recognises that the nature reserve is, however, only a small part of the Macquarie Marshes and that ensuring adequate management, particularly with respect to water allocation, for the whole area of the wetland is an important wildlife management strategy.
