Description:
A national park in Australia is a reserve of land, usually owned by a national government, protected from most human development and pollution. National parks are usually located in places which have been largely undeveloped, and often feature areas with exceptional native animals, plants and, biodiversity, or unusual geological features.
Expanded Description:
Occasionally, national parks are declared in developed areas with the goal of returning the area to resemble its original state as closely as possible. Most national parks have a dual role as offering a refuge for wildlife and as serving as popular tourist areas. [Wikipedia article "National park"]
