Nielsen Park Conservation Management Plan

Nielsen Park is a 20-hectare waterfront reserve in Vaucluse, a harbourside suburb of Sydney, that was incorporated into Sydney Harbour National Park in 1968. The park has regional and local significance because of its rich and diverse cultural, social, aesthetic and natural values. These values include Aboriginal sites, remnant bush, and a range of buildings and structures including the Victorian gothic villa, Greycliffe House.
