About the park

Berowra Valley National and Regional Park straddles large parts of the Berowra Creek catchment, covering about 4,000 hectares. Featuring expansive bushland scenery, it has enormous opportunities for bushwalking and recreation, contains many Aboriginal sites and protects a vast array of native flora and fauna.

Park management

The national park was gazetted in May 2012 with several small areas retained as a regional park. The park is owned and primarily managed by the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS). Hornsby Shire Council undertakes specific roles within the park, including the management of Crosslands Reserve.

Bushfire management

Fire mitigation and suppression in the park is undertaken by the National Parks and Wildlife Service, directed by the Fire Management Strategy.

Plan of Management

In 2005 the NSW Minister for the Environment adopted a Plan of Management for the park. Copies are available from Council's libraries or can be downloaded from
