Draft Horse Riding Management Plan: South East Wollemi National Park: Public Consultation

The Draft Horse Riding Management Plan: South East Wollemi National Park is on public exhibition until 14 March 2021.

Public exhibition of the draft horse riding management plan provides an important opportunity for members of the community to have a say in the future management of horse riding in south east Wollemi National Park.

What is a horse riding management plan?

The Wollemi National Park Plan of Management requires the preparation and public exhibition of a horse riding management plan to identify authorised horse riding routes in the south-east of the park and determine their future management.

The plan identifies proposed authorised horse riding routes in the park adjacent to the localities of Mountain Lagoon, Upper Colo, Wheeny Creek, Blaxlands Ridge Road and Kurrajong, and details conditions for horse riding.

When will the draft plan be finalised?

At the end of the public exhibition period, National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will review all submissions, prepare a submissions report and make any necessary changes to the plan. The Blue Mountains Regional Advisory Committee will then review the plan along with the submissions and report.

Once their input has been considered and any further changes made to the plan, we provide the plan to the NPWS Deputy Secretary. The plan is finalised when the Deputy Secretary formally endorses it, and we will publish it on the Department's website.
