Looking north over the proposed park

The proposed National Park would be managed by a Board established by the Minister for the Environment according to the provisions of Part 4A of the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Act.

Approximately 500ha of the proposed park area is already owned by the Metrolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council.

Another approximately 500ha is currently Crown Land gazetted as Oxford Falls Regional Crown Reserve but now under claim by the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council for the purposes of establishing
Gai-mariagal Aboriginal-owned National Park.

View to the north

This map has been produced by the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council.
The pale green areas on the map are being proposed as
Gai-mariagal Aboriginal-owned National Park.
The turquoise areas are Warringah Council reserves.

The land proposed for Gai-mariagal Aboriginal-owned National Park is in the
Warringah Local Government area in the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia.
On Sept 24, 2013 Warringah Council unanimously resolved to provide in-principle support for the establishment of Gai-mariagal National Park and to recognise the various community groups that have shown their broad support for the proposal to date.

Rock formations within the proposed area

The proposed Gai-mariagal Aboriginal-owned National Park, once established, would protect over 400 Aboriginal heritage sites, several endangered ecological communities and a number of threatened species of flora and fauna in the area.

The operation of the Park would be guided by a detailed Plan of Management prepared under the provisions of the NPWS Act.

There are stunning vistas from many parts of the proposed park.

There is a related proposal that Waratah Park be adaptively re-used as the gateway to Gai-mariagal National Park
as well as Ku-ring-gai Chase and Garigal National Parks and that an Aboriginal Cultural Centre be established at this locality.
