There are 726 national parks in Australia. They cover 35,074,410 square kilometres of land, more than 4 per cent of the total area of the country. Australia revels in a rich diversity of habitats and environments, expressed no more beautifully than in our spectacular national parks. Each has its own distinct characteristics, such as striking limestone and sandstone rock formations, gorgeous beaches, beautiful scenery and a wondrous array of flora and fauna. Many parks are a refuge to animal and plant species harried into extinction, and cannot be found anywhere else across the world.
