Outdoors NSW is recognised by the NSW Government as the peak body for the outdoors in NSW. The go-to place for all things outdoors in NSW, the organisation represents the outdoor community, advances outdoor standards, safety and practices, and fosters greater participation in the outdoors.

We’re a member-based not-for-profit (NFP) that receives modest government  funding and partnership assistance to support our members and serve the people of New South Wales – as well as visitors to our state – by helping them to get outside and experience the benefits of:

  • Outdoor Recreation
  • Outdoor Education
  • Adventure & Nature Tourism, and
  • Nature Therapy

In advancing outdoor experiences across our bountiful state, we are about:

  • Supporting a strong, vibrant and diverse industry that is a growing employer
  • Advising on important adventure activity standards
  • Developing strong healthy individuals
  • Safeguarding our outdoor spaces and access, and
  • Fostering opportunities for all people to get outdoors and enjoy the outdoor life.



For what a great outdoors we have! From our legendary Snowy Mountains to the Pacific playground that is our coastline, from our western plains to our stately national parks – all 780 of them covering 8% of our 809,444km2 region.



While a state-based organisation, Outdoors NSW engages with many national organisations representing the broad landscape of Australia’s outdoor community.
