Every year, we acquire land for our national parks by purchasing private land, public land transfers, donations and bequests.
Land is purchased each year to add to the national parks system. Most of this land is offered to us by landowners.
The Reserve Establishment Team manages the establishment of parks and reserves across NSW.
Contact us about the acquisition or reservation of land if you want to:
- offer land you own
- tell us about other land you feel has important natural or cultural value.
All offers or proposals will be treated with strict confidence.
What we look for
We will only buy land if the sale or transfer is voluntary and is suitable for reservation.
We are most interested in land that:
- has outstanding natural and cultural values
- provides significant benefits to the community
- is available for purchase or acquisition (that is, land on the open market or Crown land that is not subject to an Aboriginal land claim).
The NSW Government has also allocated funding to purchase properties in New South Wales with priority koala habitat for management and conservation within the national parks system. More on that initiative can be found on our Purchasing land with priority koala habitat page.
