About Outdoor Recreation
Outdoor recreation provides free or low-cost leisure opportunities for people to relax, get fit, soak up Vitamin D, develop friendships, spend family time together, be challenged and develop new skills and abilities – both physical and mental. It is a birthright of all Australians and an important outlet for those young (and older) people who do not identify with organised sports.
In Australia people can enjoy a myriad of outdoor pursuits by themselves, in clubs or through providers. With close to 900 national parks, NSW has a proud heritage in national parks, reserves, parks and wetlands including World Heritage sites.
Our Role in Outdoor Recreation
Our role traditionally has been about providing support, structure, advocacy and representation for led outdoor recreation activities both in a journey based and centre based program delivery. We have been instrumental in facilitating access to parks and waterways. Looking forward, we’d like to advance any new and eco-friendly leisure activity that gets people outdoors.
