NSW has three faunal emblems: The mammal is the platypus, the bird or avian emblem is the kookaburra, and the fish, or marine emblem is the blue groper.
Perhaps the kookaburra is the NSW bird emblem because it is common to that state. The kookaburra occurs naturally throughout the eastern Australian mainland states and areas of the north.

The Wiradjuri people are indigenous to New South Wales.
