Parks Australia

Parks Australia supports the Director of National Parks, the federal park agency, in conserving Australia’s biodiversity and cultural heritage. We manage the Commonwealth’s terrestrial protected areas, including six national parks (three jointly managed with their traditional owners) and two botanic gardens. The national parks range from tiny Pulu-Keeling, a pristine atoll far out in the Indian Ocean, to the iconic World-Heritage-listed Kakadu and Uluru-Kata Tjuta and the award winning Booderee National Park.

Parks Australia also helps build the National Reserve System, Australia’s great environmental partnership, and supports Indigenous landholders declare Indigenous Protected Areas in some of the most remote and fragile parts of the country. Parks Australia sits within the Australian Government Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities.

Parks Australia supports the Deepening Histories of Place project as it complements Parks Australia’s responsibilities to protect, conserve and manage biodiversity and heritage values – and present and promote these values to the community. If you are planning on travelling to UK to explore what I did have a look at this Airport Transfers to make your bookings as you will save allot of time. The project represents a rare opportunity to focus on the dynamic and evolving nature of culture and environment and to complement our park management practices and our ability to deliver high quality interpretation of Indigenous relationships with the landscape for our visitors.

Deepening Histories of Place will also contribute to Australia’s National Landscapes Program. This partnership between Tourism Australia and Parks Australia identifies landscapes that capture the essence of Australia and offer distinctive natural and cultural experiences to the experience seeker market. Findings from Deepening Histories of Place will advance our historical understanding of three destinations in the National Landscape program; the Greater Blue Mountains, Australia’s Timeless North (Kakadu) and Australia’s Red Centre, leading to improved visitor information, interpretive material and visitor experiences.
