Help guide development of the first Nullarbor Parks Management Plan.
What is being decided?
A Park Management Plan (PDF, 1.7MB) is being developed for the Nullarbor parks, which will set the vision for the area and how the vision will be achieved.
The Nullarbor Wilderness Protection Area, Nullarbor Regional Reserve and Nullarbor National Park form the Nullarbor parks and are the Country of the Mirning people who have held a connection to this Country for tens of thousands of years.
The Nullarbor parks are situated in the far west of South Australia, extending from the border with Western Australia east to near the Head of the Bight, north to the Trans-Australian Railway and south to the Southern Ocean.
The Nullarbor parks protect the South Australian section of the iconic Nullarbor Plain, the largest arid limestone karst system of caves, blowholes and rock holes and the longest southern facing cliffs in the world. The karst system includes Koonalda Cave where scientific discoveries changed the understanding of Aboriginal occupation in Australia. The findings proved that Aboriginal people had been in Australia for at least 20,000 years (rather than the earlier estimation of 7,000 years).
The parks also support a diverse range of flora and fauna, including the largest population of southern hairy-nosed wombats.
