Map of the Australian Alps national parks.
Stretching from Canberra through the Brindabella Range to the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales and along the Great Divide through eastern Victoria, Australia's alpine and subalpine environments are unique and special.
There are eleven national parks and reserves in the Australian Alps that cross State and Territory borders. These parks and reserves are collectively known as the Australian Alps national parks.
National parks and nature reserves within the Alps are managed by each state or territory government.
In the past, each had its own way of dealing with the challenges of park management. In order to better protect the Alps, the Park agencies agreed to work together in partnership with the Australian Government by establishing the Australian Alps national parks Co-operative Management Program..
