The department has wide ranging policy, regulatory and operational functions. These include the field operations in Commonwealth administered reserves, including Uluru, Kakadu and Booderee National Parks, and in the Australian Antarctic Territory.

It is a massive area larger than our landmass and extends from the tropical seas of the north to the sub-Antarctic waters of the Southern Ocean. The total area of 3.1 million square kilometres of ocean is being managed primarily for biodiversity conservation, fulfilling the Australian Government's part in the creation of the national system
