World Parks Day is a great opportunity to celebrate our parks and reserves. The celebration invites you to discover and reconnect with parks in your area. National parks and other reserves contain outstanding natural and cultural heritage. They also provide opportunities to get fit and healthy, take time out, spend time with family and friends and relax and revitalise.
World Parks Day is an open invitation to all to take time out and enjoy the magnificent natural environment that Tasmania is renowned for. Make a date in your calendar and celebrate!
