Horse Riding Management Plan for South-east Wollemi National Park

Planning for horse riding experiences in South-east Wollemi National Park has been finalised.

The Wollemi National Park Horse Riding Management Plan for South-east Wollemi National Park provides details of the routes that may be authorised and the conditions for horse riding in this area of the park. The plan also includes information on the assessment process for future horse riding proposals.

How did consultation inform the final plan?

A draft plan was prepared over several years to identify proposed authorised horse riding routes in the park adjacent to the localities of Mountain Lagoon, Upper Colo, Wheeny Creek, Blaxlands Ridge and Kurrajong.

The draft horse riding plan was placed on public exhibition from 18 December 2020 to 14 March 2021.

How will the plan be implemented?

We plan to progressively install the necessary infrastructure and address local management issues to provide safe and sustainable horse riding experiences identified in the plan. This includes but is not limited to:

  • installing appropriate signage and horse riding access gates
  • repairing and making safe trails impacted by high rainfall
  • undertaking compliance activities to prevent illegal trail bike access and working with NSW Police to improve driver behaviour on multi-use roads
  • working with horse riders to facilitate organised competitions and other organised horse riding activities (commercial and non- commercial), consistent with the plan
