Western Australia’s national parks and other conservation reserves protect and showcase some of our nation’s most remarkable natural landscapes. From Karijini to Ningaloo to ancient karri forests in the South West, national parks are the backbone of our efforts to safeguard our unique wildlife and the diversity of habitats they call home.
With more than 20 million visitors a year, and with numbers continuing to grow, our parks inspire new generations to become passionate about nature and provide a much-needed boost to jobs and businesses in our regions. On an increasingly crowded planet, it is our open landscapes and iconic natural attractions that are the number one reason why international tourists visit Western Australia. For regional towns, nothing says ‘this is a destination worth visiting’ like having a national park marked close by on the regional map.
However, this enormous contribution from parks is a success story that continues to need our support. After you’ve joined our call to create a new network of National Parks in Outback WA, you can support our existing parks through the WA Parks Foundation and find out more about each park by visiting Parks and Wildlife.
