There are thousands of national parks and other conservation reserves in Australia. They protect a huge variety of environments - from deserts to rainforests, and from 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.
