The full version of the Narawntapu National Park, Hawley Nature Reserve Management Plan 2016 can be downloaded as a PDF.

Summary

The scenic natural landscapes of the Park contain intrinsically important environmental values which also underpin the value of the Park for recreation and tourism. Many features of the Park are also of scientific and educational interest. The Park also contains features of Aboriginal and historic heritage value.

The management plan provides for conservation of the values of the Park and the Reserve. In the case of Narawntapu National Park, the plan also provides for visitor access and facilities.
 
To these ends, the management plan:

- zones the Park and Reserve to take account of different features and values and direct and manage visitor activities and impacts;

- focuses on conservation of threatened and priority flora and fauna species and communities with CAR or National Estate values;

- protects Aboriginal and historic heritage features and values;

- in the national park, identifies key locations for provision of visitor facilities and services at a number of locations in the Springlawn area, and at Badger Head and West Head; and

- promotes the Park as an important visitor destination in northern Tasmania.
