Australia National Parks


A rich tapestry of parks and reserves covers Australia from the southern tip of Tasmania to the northern tip of Cape York and from the Great Dividing Range in the east to the far western extremity of Western Australia.

Alpine meadows in the high country of New South Wales and Victoria; towering gums in the southwest of Western Australia; rich verdant rainforests in Queensland; impenetrable temperate forests and untouched rivers in Tasmania, the floodplains and escarpments of the Northern Territory and the untracked desert country and outback mountain ranges in South Australia, all offer a safe, vibrant habitat for our unique flora and fauna. They are also places where we, as part of nature, can seek solace, enjoyment and adventure.

Australia is fortunate in that it has the landmass and the lack of population pressure to incorporate much of its natural treasures in parks and reserves of significant size. In the last 20 years, with a growing awareness of our natural heritage, each state and territory has increased vastly the amount of land protected in national parks and reserves and many of those parks are in excess of one million hectares. A number are bigger than some European countries! Even so, there are some anomalies and no standard is followed by the states in what constitutes a national park, a conservation park, a state park, or whatever. It is a little confusing!
