Plan of Management, Cape Byron State Recreation Area

Client: Cape Byron Trust & NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service
Location: Cape Byron State Recreation Area (Headland Reserve)

Wildsite was commissioned to prepare a detailed Plan of Management for the Cape Byron State Recreation Area.  The plan was developed to cover all aspects of the management of the protected area.  The SRA’s natural, cultural and recreational values are of outstanding significance, and their use and appreciation by over 1 million regional, interstate and international visitors each year presents a myriad of complex management issues.

A review of all available reports and data was undertaken to identify the nature and scope of the reserve’s management issues, including a review of stakeholder workshop papers.  Detailed themes of management were grouped into broad strategies including natural resources, cultural resources, recreation, tourism and visitor use, and complementary management of adjacent areas.  For each of the 31 management themes the plan presents background discussions and provides desired outcome statements, guidelines, policies and recommended actions.

The plan provides detailed guidance for the management of the reserve until 2011 and a framework for over $2,000,000 of management improvements over this time.
