Wild horses will be removed from Kosciuszko National Park within weeks after the state government rebooted a re-homing program.
NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro and Environment Minister Matt Kean have also announced the appointment of a Kosciuszko wild horse community advisory panel.
"I have also asked my department to recommence the re-homing program. This will start from next week, with the first horses to be removed within four to six weeks. This will be the first time in two years that horses have been removed from the park," Mr Kean said.
"I very much look forward to working with the panel to reduce the damage the horses are causing in this beautiful and iconic park.
"I will take a science-based approach on this issue. I want to make sure we get the best result for our natural environment."
The committee will have access to a survey of the horse population in Kosciuszko National Park, which is currently being finalised.
"I've long been advocating for a balance between recognising the heritage and cultural significance of the brumbies, while enabling active management to reduce their impact on the national park's alpine environment," Mr Barilaro said.
"The appointment of the Kosciuszko wild horse community advisory panel means we can get on with the job.
"I'm thrilled to announce that Tim Johnson has been appointed chair of the CAP and he will directly update the NSW Government and the National Parks and Wildlife Service on the work of the panel and progress within the Kosciuszko National Park.
"Mr Johnson is the man for the job - a nominated representative of the Snowy Horse Riders Association and he was integral in forming the National Heritage Listing over the Australian Alps.
"Wild brumbies have been roaming the Australian Alps for almost 200 years, and are part of the cultural fabric and folklore of the high country.
"This management plan is the best way forward to manage both the brumby population and the ecological protection of the National Park."
Chief scientist Hugh Durrant-Whyte has been appointed as deputy chairman of the community advisory panel to advise both the government and National Parks and Wildlife Service on the draft management plan for horses within Kosciuszko National Park.
