Natural heritage of Sydney Olympic Park
Sydney Olympic Park is home to diverse natural environments of high ecological value. This encompasses forest, woodland, grassland and wetland habitats. In the Park, there are three endangered ecological communities and 100 hectares of intertidal wetlands.
Under NSW legislation 304 hectares of the Park have been zoned for environmental conservation or management. Over 250 native wildlife species and 400 plant species are supported by these areas, including many threatened species. This biodiversity demonstrates the positive outcomes that can be achieved with ongoing protection and restoration.
A comprehensive annual ecological monitoring and reporting program for focal species and communities informs the Authority’s conservation management strategies.
