New walks and visitor experiences

Infrastructure program enhances visitor experiences across New South Wales.

The National Parks and Wildlife Service is delivering more than $450 million of visitor infrastructure improvements across the State.

This is the largest investment in visitor infrastructure in national parks history. It includes:

  • exciting new multi-day walks and eco-adventures
  • 750 kilometres of new and upgraded walking and cycling tracks
  • more than 60 new or improved picnic and visitor areas
  • more than 35 campground upgrades.

Through this funding, we are transforming national parks into destinations of significance by improving accessibility, providing opportunities to appreciate our rich natural and cultural heritage, and delivering exceptional nature-based tourism experiences.

Below are some of the new walks and visitor experiences being delivered throughout New South Wales. We are engaging with stakeholders and interested community members at key stages of these projects.

These projects are stimulating economic activity and job creation in communities across New South Wales, helping our regional towns to recover in the wake of droughts, bushfires, floods and the pandemic.

Conservation is at the heart of everything we do, and these projects play an important role in strengthening the connection between conservation and visitation.

National parks offer positive opportunities for humans to connect with nature and learn about the unique natural, cultural and heritage values of the environment under our care.

When we develop visitor experiences and build new facilities, we always focus strongly on sustainability and a gentle footprint that balances the needs of people and our park environment.

For many, visiting a national park is their gateway to caring for the natural world. Our carefully designed visitor experiences invite people to arrive as visitors but leave as conservationists.
