Australia has more than 500 national parks covering an incredible 69 million acres (28 million hectares) - almost four per cent of the country. Australian national parks are found in a diverse number of landscapes: from alpine regions to deserts, forests and marine areas. Like Australian Zoos, Australia's national parks serve to protect our native plants and wildlife. They are also places to enjoy and learn about Australia's environment, heritage and culture. Whether it's meeting Aboriginal elders at Uluru, snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef or trekking through the Tasmanian Wilderness, here are some of Australia's top national parks to help plan your visit.
