Rathmines Park draft Conservation Management Plan

Consultation has concluded

Thank you for your participation in the Rathmines Park draft Conservation Management Plan consultation. All feedback received has now been reviewed and you can view the engagement summary.

We have now submitted the draft Plan to the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage for endorsement. It is expected this could take up to six months. We will provide further information about the consultation to develop the Master Plan and Plan of Management once the Conservation Management Plan has been endorsed.

Rathmines Park is an area with significant local and national historical value, recognised by its inclusion on the NSW State Heritage Register. The Rathmines RAAF seaplane base played a pivotal role in the defence of Australia in World War II. It was the largest seaplane base in the Southern Hemisphere and was the longest serving during the war effort. It is the most intact example of an RAAF WWII seaplane base in Australia.

The Rathmines Park draft Conservation Management Plan has been prepared to further understand the heritage of the site by investigating its historical and geographical context, research potential and importance to the community.
