Australian National Parks

Adventures

Australia is often described as having 'beauty rich and rare' - and when it comes to our naturally diverse and spectacular national parks, this couldn't be more true. 

From the other-worldly vibes of outback NSW's Mungo National Park, to the tropical paradise that is Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park or the wild ruggedness of the Grampians National Park - it's clear that no two national parks in this country are the same - and each offer a unique experience for the visitor.

As Australians, swapping the hustle and bustle of the city for the chance to sleep out under the stars is our national pastime, and it's camping out in a national park that many outdoor lovers simply can't resist.

National parks offer a smorgasbord of other activities too, including bushwalking, birdwatching, fossicking, kayaking or canoeing, swimming, fishing, mountain biking, 4WDing. Whatever your style of adventure, there's a national park that caters for you. 

The following national parks showcase the best of Australia, so whether it's camping in a world-heritage listed park in Qld, or discovering culturally significant sites in an outback NSW national park, you can find all the info you need here.
