Our Story

NPA was formed by passionate conservation bushwalkers back in 1957 with shared vision to protect nature through community action.

As a charity organisation, we believe that caring springs from personal connections with nature, and we deliver more than a thousand bushwalks, citizen science and community engagment events each year, while advocating for nature, contributing to park management planning and conducting conservation campaigns across NSW.

There are local volunteer run NPA branches across most of NSW. Each branch runs their own activities/campaigns.
