Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
The National Parks Authority was established under the provisions of the National Parks Act 1956. The Act provided for the appointment of an Authority which consisted of the Premier, who was to be the responsible minister, the Director of National Parks, representatives of many of the public authorities with responsibility in the area and representatives of interested organisations.

The National Parks (Amendment) Act 1971 transferred the statutory functions of the National Parks Authority to the Minister and the agency became known as the National Parks Service.

In 1983 the National Parks Service ceased to exist as a separate agency. Its functions were transferred to the newly formed Department of Conservation, Forests and Lands (VA 1034) of which it became a branch.
