Australia is a wild-at-heart continent with one of the largest and most comprehensive national park networks in the world. This is a guide to the best 150 parks around the country.Some of our parks are pure wilderness, with little or no facilities and even restricted access, but most offer a range of activities from camping and caravanning, bushwalking, picnicking, four-wheel driving, mountain biking and other adventure pursuits. All of them strive to protect significant sections of landscape, delicate ecosystems and previous cultural heritage for future generations. Australia's Best National Parks includes: * comprehensive activity icons for each park * how to get there * when to go * top tracks and trails * best picnic spots * accommodation and camping facilities and more.
