With the creation of the Wilinggin National Park in partnership with Wilinggin traditional owners, the establishment of Australia’s biggest national park has taken another step forward.

Not only is the size of the park remarkable, it will also protect important ecosystems as well as significant cultural sites.
The Wilinggin National Park will cover 740,000 hectares spanning parts of Prince Regent and Mitchell River national parks as well as connect conservation reserves from the King Leopold Ranges up to the Mitchell River.
