Formerly known as NatureBase, Department of Conservation and Land Management, now Department
of Environment and Conservation (DEC).
Visitors and locals are attracted to Western Australia’s lands and waters for
their unique and unusual plants and animals; Aboriginal culture; bizarre and
beautiful landscapes; and vast arid interior – among many, many other features.
These attractions are available to visitors through a number of premium,
nature-based tourism attractions and experiences.
The lands and waters managed by the Department of Environment and
Conservation (DEC) cover more than 26 million hectares of some of the most
ancient landscapes you’ll find anywhere in the world, and which receive more
10 million visits annually.
