Enjoy fresh air, nature and free fun in a National Park

FOR a fun weekend away, treat yourself to a free visit to one of the National Parks across the region.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the National Parks and Wildlife Act, NPWS are opening up parks free this weekend.

Coffs Harbour MP Andrew Fraser said the fee-free weekend was a celebration of legislation that was crucial in protecting NSW's natural and cultural heritage as well as our unique wildlife.

"The weekend will be a great opportunity for families across NSW to take advantage of the fee-free weekend to explore our National Parks for a picnic, a walk or simply to drive through," Mr Fraser said.

"The NSW Government has provided an additional $40 million to maintain our parks, enhance education and improve access.

"We have created nine parks and provided $62.5 million to increase hazard reduction in national parks, including the employment of 94 additional fire-fighters."
