National Parks


In a park, you can experience the magnificence and amazing atmosphere of greatness and beauty of our nature. Nature reveals all the colours of its splendour in the forests, mountains, plains and meadows. Merging with nature is so imperceptible that we immerse ourselves in the most secret and unexplored corners of nature and the universe itself. Only alone with nature, we feel calm, stronger, and more confident.


Australia has more than 500 national parks. The national parks of Australia are huge areas of land that are protected to preserve the pristine habitat of rare animals and preserve the heritage and culture. This is an important part of our civilization that will be passed down to our descendants from generation to generation. Australia has 14 World Heritage areas, which were agreed upon with such organisations as UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation. Let's look at some examples of Australia's national parks.
