Nature Near Me has been created by the NSW Government to help you explore and share NSW’s unique and wonderful nature places.

Use the map to view different types of nature places like old growth forest, rainforest, woodlands, grasslands, great spots to see animals, marine sites, whale watching locations, great views, rivers, wetlands and more.

Plan your nature journey and create your own itineraries to access sites when your device is out of range. Set alerts to be notified of approaching nature places, and share places using social media.

Please note:
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Great idea

Great idea. Finding it hard to use - just needs a bit more UI development

This is a great app we use it whenever we have a spare Saturday, it helps discover great hidden gems around us in Sydney!

This is an amazing app! I've already visited one place I never knew existed.
I wish this covered all of Australia and not just NSW.
