What you said

Have your say on the Ngaut Ngaut Conservation Park Draft Management Plan, which sets out the management directions for the Ngaut Ngaut Conservation Park.

What is being decided?

The Ngaut Ngaut Conservation Park Draft Management Plan (PDF 2.2MB) has been developed by the Ngaut Ngaut Co-management Board in conjunction with the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources. Once finalised, the plan will set out objectives and strategies for the ongoing protection and conservation of Ngaut Ngaut Conservation Park.

How can your input influence the decision?

A draft management plan has been developed to facilitate community input into the management of this park.

The management plan addresses the most important management issues for the park focusing on two key themes:

Theme 1 – Interpreting and celebrating Nganguraku culture through guided tours

Theme 2 – Looking after the park and its cultural sites
