"NSW has over 130 estuaries that vary in size from small coastal creeks and lagoons to large lakes and rivers. Estuaries contain diverse ecosystems that form the foundation of the coastal food chain. They provide important habitats for a variety of marine and terrestrial plants and animals.
Estuaries have a special place in the lives of most Australians. People want to live near estuaries and if they can't, they want to take their holidays there. In NSW, over 75% of the population live and work in towns and cities near estuaries. A high proportion of the State's commercial activity occurs near estuaries as they provide an important focus for industry, tourism and recreational activities."
