Paroo-Darling National Park is located in far western New South Wales near the town of White Cliffs in the Wilcannia area. The park contains Aboriginal sites such as burial and occupation sites, rock engravings, stencil sites, paintings, and ancestral story places that are more than 13,000 years old. It also has places of cultural value for bush tucker and bush medicine, and areas of historic value.

This memorandum of understanding formalises the commitment of the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, part of OEH, to work co-operatively with the Paroo Darling National Park Elders Council to manage the natural and Aboriginal cultural heritage in the Paroo Darling National Park and surrounding area. To date this collaborative work has included the listing of the Parroo River Wetlands as a wetland of international importance and protecting it under the Ramsar Convention.

Date agreement was signed: 25 November 2010
