Toorale National Park and Toorale State Conservation Area were purchased by the NSW Government as Toorale Station in 2008. Together, the combined area of the national park and state conservation area is 85,251 hectares that represents one of the 15 largest parks in the State. It is located at the junction of the Darling and Warrego rivers, in the semi-arid environment of north-west New South Wales. This draft plan has been developed with input from the Kurnu-Baakandji Joint Management Committee, local community members and key stakeholders.

Parks and reserves established under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 need to have a plan of management. The plan includes information on important park values and provides directions for future management. The plan of management is a legal document, and after the plan is adopted all operations and activities in the park must be in line with the plan.

This plan of management will replace the statement of management intent which was approved 1 June 2014. Statements of management intent are non-statutory documents which summarise the key values and management directions for a park.

More information

When will the plan of management be finalised?

At the end of the public exhibition period in May 2018, NPWS will comprehensively review all submissions, prepare a submissions report and make any necessary changes to the draft plan. The Far West Regional Advisory Committee and the National Parks and Wildlife Advisory Council will then review the plan along with the submissions and report, as required by the National Parks and Wildlife Act.

Once their input has been considered and any further changes made to the plan we provide the plan to the Minister for the Environment. The plan of management is finalised when the Minister formally adopts the plan under the National Parks and Wildlife Act. Once a plan is adopted it is published on the NPWS website and a public notice is advertised in the NSW Government Gazette.
