Land recently acquired for parks

Land must be assessed, approved and acquired before it can be officially reserved and declared as a new park or an addition to a park.

Land we acquire for the national parks system can take time to be formally reserved under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974This is because administrative processes need time to be completed.

You can contact our Reserve Establishment Team to let us know of any matters about land acquired for the national parks system.
