    Safety messages

    However you discover NSW national parks and reserves, we want you to have a safe and enjoyable experience. Our park and reserve systems contrast greatly so you need to be aware of the risks and take responsibility for your own safety and the safety of those in your care.


    Volunteering with NPWS offers is a great way to help protect our national parks and wildlife. These volunteering safety tips will help create a safe working environment for all volunteers.
