This is an official blog run by NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) to share nature stories we find across the state.

Photographic representations used in this blog accurately portray the location and surrounding landscape at the time taken. At no point is the intention to mislead as we always endeavour to portray our national parks and nature reserves in their true form. However there are parts of our parks and nature reserves that have been effected beyond our control, such as drought, bushfire and various stages of recovery.

We encourage all our visitors to explore and experience our NSW National Parks. However we remind you and your companions to stay safe as our national parks are natural, and unpredictable environments. Please plan for your trip with our safety tips and check for all  park alerts before visiting.

We take care of 895+ national parks and reserves across about 7.6 million hectares, or 9.5% of NSW’s land area, in order to conserve our state’s biodiversity and cultural heritage.

Find out more about volunteering, donations, careers and more of what we do over at the official NPWS website.
