In 1960 the NPA ACT was established with the objective of getting a national park for the national capital. This goal was achieved in 1984 when Namadgi National Park was proclaimed. Today, our work promotes national parks and nature reserves for the protection of our fauna and flora, scenery, natural features and cultural heritage. We do this by lobbying, supporting research and citizen science projects, and by hands-on work parties.
Our outdoor activities include field trips, work parties, day walks and longer pack walks, and car camps, to enable members of all ages to better appreciate and enjoy the natural phenomena and cultural heritage.
