New parks and additions to parks

We acquire land to establish new parks and add land to already established reserves.

Mares Forest wilderness, Wombeyan Karst Conservation ReserveThere are more than 870 parks, reserves, conservation areas and Aboriginal areas in the New South Wales national parks system.

Each year we acquire land to expand and enhance our national parks system so that we can best protect our natural and cultural heritage.

This land may be acquired to add to an existing reserve or it may be acquired to establish a new national park or another type of protected area. All parks, reserves and protected areas are referred to as parks.
