Healthy Parks, Healthy People

The Healthy Parks Healthy People philosophy is an integrated, multi-disciplinary, collaborative approach that acknowledges the integral link between nature and human health.

Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service has adopted the philosophy and will be working to establish partnerships that provide opportunities for its development. Its aim is to improve the quality of life of visitors to national parks and reserves. People are encouraged to experience their natural surroundings and enjoy the physical, social, mental and spiritual health benefits of visiting national parks. Parks and their scenic landscapes and facilities provide the perfect opportunity for people to get fit and healthy, take time out or just relax and revitalise. Whatever your age, interest or fitness level, parks have something for everyone.
