Visitor facility upgrade begins
UPGRADE works to visitor facilities at Broken Head Nature Reserve day use area are underway this week improving the visitor experience and visitor safety.
National Parks and Wildlife Service Area Manager Sue Walker said the day use area, which was previously managed by the Department of Lands, recently became part of Broken Head Nature Reserve.
“The Broken Head day use area, adjacent littoral rainforest and dunes were recently transferred to the NPWS as an outcome of the Indigenous Land Use Agreement with the ‘Bundjalung of Byron Bay’ (Arakwal) people,” Ms Walker said.
“Following exhibition of concept plans and community consultation a plan to improve the facilities has now been finalised.
“The upgrade works being undertaken are consistent with community submissions and will improve visitor facilities such as showers, toilets and pathways.
“New barbecues have already been installed in response to community feedback."
