The national parks of Australia take their abode in varied terrains ranging forests to marine region to deserts to forests. There exist more than 500 national parks in Australia, covering over whopping 28 million hectares. These national parks serve as shelter for native plants and wildlife. In addition, Australian national parks have always been down the alley of individuals, who seek to delve into the long-surviving heritage, culture, and environment of Australia. Be it a tryst with aboriginal elders at Uluru, trekking through the Tasmanian wilderness or snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef, the national parks in Australia leave you spoilt for choices.

Some of the exceptional national parks in Australia are:

Kosciuszko National Park

The largest national park in New South Wales, Kosciuszko National Park features Mount Kosciuszko, the highest mountain in Australia, and the Snowy River. Besides, it lays spectacular gorges, caves, alpine flora, and historic settlements by mountain cattlemen in store for the visitors. Further, listed as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the length and breadth of the park surround six different wildlife areas, including alpine and sub-alpine areas, where a distinguished flora inhabits.

Flinders Ranges National Park

Flinders Ranges National Park features the remains of early European settlement, fossil remains which can be traced to Australia’s geological history, and Aboriginal rock art sites.
