Help guide development of the Yellabinna and Warna Manda (coastal land) Parks Management Plan

What is being decided?

Park Management Plan (PDF, 5.6MB) is being developed for the Yellabinna and Warna Manda parks, which will set the vision for the area and how the vision will be achieved.

The management plan includes:

• the Yellabinna parks: Boondina Conservation Park, Pureba Conservation Park, Yellabinna Wilderness Protection Area, Yellabinna Regional Reserve and Yumbarra Conservation Park
• the Warna Manda (coastal land) parks: Acraman Creek Conservation Park, Chadinga Conservation Park, Fowlers Bay Conservation Park, Laura Bay Conservation Park, Point Bell Conservation Park, Wahgunyah Conservation Park and Wittelbee Conservation Park.

The Yellabinna parks protect over 3 million hectares of mallee woodland – the largest intact area in the world. The features of the Yellabinna parks such as the rock holes, salt lakes, plants and animals form a complex and interconnected cultural landscape.

The Warna Manda parks preserve the most significant areas of native vegetation along the coastline between Streaky Bay and the Yalata Indigenous Protected Area, as well as Aboriginal cultural sites.

The parks also support a diverse range of flora and fauna, including the Australian sea lion and migratory shorebirds such as the great knot.

These parks are part of the Far West Coast Aboriginal people’s Country. They have held a connection to this Country for tens of thousands of years. The parks have special meaning to many locals as well as being holiday destinations for tourists looking for a remote and natural experience.
