National Parks and State Forests

There are thousands of national parks and other types of conservation reserves across Australia. These areas protect a huge variety of environments – from deserts to rainforests, and coral reefs to eucalypt woodlands. Only a few ‘national’ parks are managed at a national level by the Australian Federal Government. Most parks and reserves are conserved by government agencies in each of Australia’s eight states and territories.
