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 in 2014. Statements of management intent are non-statutory documents which summarise the key values and management directions for a park.

The Yanga parks are of significance for a broad range of natural, cultural and social values including unique geological landscapes, threatened ecological plant communities, important wetlands and a rich Aboriginal and shared cultural history.

The Yanga Conservation Management Plan provides detail about the significant shared heritage values of the parks and is supplementary to the plan of management.
