Wollemi National Park - Lithgow
Wollemi National Park is New South Wales' largest wilderness area, situated on 492,220 hectares. A spectacular maze of canyons, cliffs and undisturbed forest. Descend to the Colo River on Bob Turners Track and enjoy the beaches in one of the State's longest and most scenic gorges. Interesting ruins at Newnes and a Glow Worm filled railway tunnel nearby.
Camp at Dunns Swamp, Wheeney Creek or Newnes.
Possibly the most important aspect of Wollemi National Park is that it protects, permanently, the largest remaining forested wilderness in New South Wales, including the Colo-Capertee river system, used extensively with the surrounding bushland for hardy recreation activities. The Colo River and its gorge is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular in Australia.
Activities in the park include bushwalking, canoeing, liloing, bushcamping. Dunnes Swamp is one of the best camping grounds in the park providing toilets and firewood, however, there are no showers.
Accessible at all times
