What We Do

NPAQ advocates for the protection, expansion, effective management and presentation of national parks.

We offer a growing Kids in National Parks program, a bushwalking and outdoor recreation activity program, and opportunities to participate in community conservation and Citizen Science projects.

We support the development and application of scientific and professional knowledge in advancing national parks and nature conservation.

Whether the idea of taking your children out into nature fills you with excitement or dread, we know that the benefits of children interacting with nature include:

  • Positive mental health outcomes

  • Physical health benefits

  • Enhanced intellectual development

  • A stronger sense of concern and care for the environment.
