National Parks Association of NSW (NPA) has been established as a conservation organisation for 60 years. We also run one of Australia’s largest bushwalking clubs with a network of 16 branches, hundreds of active volunteers and over 40,000 supporters.
NPA has played a role in the establishment of many of NSW’s national parks and nature reserves. Today there are 877 protected areas covering 7 million hectares on the land (9% of the State) and 66,000 ha of marine waters (6.5% of the coast), far exceeding the goals of our founders. NSW is one of the most environmentally diverse areas on earth and we work hard to ensure it remains this way.
