NPWS Primary Logo

The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) and NSW Waratah logos make up the primary NSW National Parks Logo lockup, along with the website and dividing line.

This logo is to be used on any branded communications and collateral produced by NSW National Parks to market the parks to visitors. It should only appear on a white background.

NPWS Secondary Logo

The secondary logo lockup is the same as the primary one but without the website reference. It should only be used as follows:

  • When the web address is redundant (i.e. logo is on the website itself) or
  • On specific collateral, which aims to promote another website. As with the primary lockup, it should only appear on a white background.
  • On visitor centre signage

Downloading files

To download a file, right click on the file name link and select 'save target/link as'.

Sometimes in the process of downloading image files, file endings are renamed:

xxx.eps files can become files

Before inserting images, rename downloaded files to restore the .eps ending.

File types

  • PNG files are suitable for use on web pages.
  • JPG files are suitable for low cost print and web production.
  • EPS files should be used only by professional designers and staff experienced in using the encapsulated postscript (EPS files) version of logos and sub brands. EPS can be used only with specialist software. After downloading an EPS file, the extension '.ps' will need to be replaced with '.eps' before it can be used.
