The Ramsar Convention is an inter-governmental treaty that embodies the commitments of its member countries to maintain the ecological character of their Wetlands of International Importance. The Office of Environment and Heritage, NSW is responsible for managing the majority of Ramsar wetlands in NSW, including: Blue Lake (in Kosciuszko NP), Gwydir Wetlands (part only - Gwydir Wetlands SCA), Hunter Estuary Wetlands (Kooragang component), Lake Pinaroo (in Sturt NP), Little Llangothlin NR, Macquarie Marshes (Macquarie Marshes NR component), Myall Lakes, Narran Lakes, NSW Central Murray State Forests (Millewa Forests and Werai Forests components), Paroo River Wetlands, and Towra Point NR. Ramsar Wetlands on other tenures include Fivebough and Tuckerbil Swamps (Crown land), Gwydir Wetlands (freehold land - Crinolyn, Windella and Godddard's Lease components), Hunter Estuary Wetlands (Hunter Wetlands Centre Australia component), Macquarie Marshes (Wilgara and U-block components), and NSW Central Murray State Forests (Koondrook Forests component).

Lineage

The data has been created from a combination of cadastral information (freehold property, Crown land, TSRs and national parks/nature reserves) and SPOT 5 imagery in a few instances where the Ramsar boundary does not follow cadastral boundaries (e.g. for part of Fivebough - Tuckerbil site), with detailed ground surveying to confirm boundary of part of Gwydir Wetlands site (i.e. Goddard's Lease component), and the Hunter Wetlands Centre component of the Hunter Estuary Wetlands site.
