Celebrating 50 years

This year, at NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, we're celebrating our 50th anniversary. Since 1967 we’ve been proudly protecting and preserving our natural landscapes, wildlife, culture and heritage.

This milestone is a great excuse to get into a national park near you. Make new memories, or recreate some old ones. If you’re looking for inspiration or tips for your next escape, wander over to our blog.

Join in our 50th anniversary events and guided tours.

Share your memories on social media

To celebrate, we’ve created an online space for memories from the last 50 years. We’ll be sharing photos and history from the archives. We’re asking you to share yours too:

Post a retro photo, some old footage, or the story of your first national parks experience, using the hashtag #50yearsNPWS
