There are numerous hunting properties located in nearly all areas of Australia, but some of the best can be found in New South Wales. Located in the south-eastern area of the country, New South Wales contains many different types of habitats in which to find game, including coastal plains, forested areas, and arid desert in the north-western portion of the state. Nearly 80% of the state forests are open to hunters holding the proper hunting permit and other hunting properties can be found in various areas around New South Wales.
Hunting properties in New South Wales can be visited with just your hunting party or a hunting guide that will take you to the best places to hunt. The hunting guide may make all of the necessary arrangements for the hunt, but this is not guaranteed so it is important to determine what you will need and what arrangements you will need to make prior to the hunting trip. Local hunting laws are in effect, even on private property, and each hunter is expected to treat the flora and fauna with respect while hunting in the area.
