Jobs and tourism benefit from national park investment::

The NSW Government is calling for construction workers and businesses to register their interest in working on the state's iconic parks as part of a $149.5 million investment commitment.

Recent figures reveal a 16.6% increase on visitors to national parks across NSW last year. This included 60 million visitors to NSW national parks in 2018, compared to 51.77 million in 2016.

NSW Energy and Environment Minister Matt Kean said, "We've got some of the world's best and most significant national parks right here in NSW and I'm inviting the best of the construction industry to help make them even better.

"This will create local jobs, support local business and boost regional economies."

Successful applicants will renew walking tracks, enhance visitor information and experiences, facilities and accessibility at national parks across the state.
