The National Parks and Wildlife Service incorporates 14 regions, made up of more than 65 areas, with offices located in local towns, and their main centres in Coffs Harbour, Queanbeyan, Parramatta and Dubbo. There are also a number of visitor information centres and works depots strategically located to meet the needs of the community and to manage protected areas.
Natural and cultural heritage is conserved at a local and regional level, and partnerships are developed with the community and other governments and agencies, providing leadership and direction through conservation programs. New South Wales has more than 805 national parks and reserves. They protect landscapes from rainforests and rugged bush to marine wonderlands and outback deserts. The map below shows the 14 regions.
