Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park Consultation

Be part of the conversation

Tell us how we can improve decisions and services in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park

Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park is located on the northern fringe of Sydney. It is Australia’s second oldest national park and one of the busiest in New South Wales.

There were over 2.6 million visits to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park in 2014, putting it in the top three most visited parks in New South Wales.

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) has seen a sustained increase in visitors coming to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park to enjoy the views, waterways and bushland, especially on sunny weekends and holidays.

Accommodating all these visitors and protecting the environment is challenging. Good planning is essential to meet increasing demand and continue to improve visitor facilities to maximise opportunities and minimise impacts.

We think it is important to keep you informed and invite you to be a part of the conversation about planning for the future.

Planning for the future – new plan of management for Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park

Plans of management guide what happens in our national parks, and how we manage them.
Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, Lion Island Nature Reserve, Spectacle Island Nature Reserve and Long Island Nature Reserve are managed together under one plan of management.

The existing plan of management for Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park dates back to 2002, with an amendment made in 2014.

Many things have changed in the last 14 years and a new plan is needed.

Before we draft the new plan, we're inviting stakeholder and community input on a number of important issues. We are preparing discussion papers that will be available to read and comment on. Your response to these discussion papers will help inform the development of the new plan of management and secure the future of these parks.

Register for updates if you’d like to be notified when the discussion papers are ready.

There will be another opportunity to have your say when the draft plan is completed and put on public exhibition. If you register your details we can notify you when the draft plan of management is available. Go to the questions and answers tab to find out more about the plan of management preparation process.
