Fernhill Estate Plan of Management
Fernhill Estate is an idyllic rural parkland and a place of natural beauty on the edge of the Cumberland Plain, at the base of the Blue Mountains.
It is a place of quiet contemplation, a place to feel part of nature, to share the legacy of our past and for the future, and a place to be active and feel healthy.
Greater Sydney Parklands has worked with the community, stakeholders and partners to develop the Fernhill Estate Plan of Management. The Plan establishes the vision and key moves for the Estate for the five years and ensures it has a sustainable future for the people of NSW. It will be used to shape and guide our work to protect, activate and celebrate this special place.
The Plan sets out opportunities and management priorities to open the Estate for the public to further enjoy and use, while protecting its natural and cultural heritage and its idyllic rural and bushland setting. It creates opportunities for more people to enjoy this special place through different activities such as picnicking with friends, visiting Fernhill House, exercising on walking, or cycling paths or attending arts or cultural activities.
The Plan and activation for Fernhill Estate supports and aligns with the vision and strategic directions in the NSW Government’s 50-year Vision for Greater Sydney’s Open Space and Parklands.
