Medium-to-high densities of feral pigs are most prevalent in western and northern NSW. They prefer wetlands, floodplains and watercourses.

About 30 million hectares in NSW is free of feral pigs with around 10% of this area in national parks. This means that NSW national parks have relatively more areas free from this pest animal than other land tenures.
