Wollemi National Park

World Heritage-listed Wollemi National Park offers a dramatic setting for scenic walks, swimming, canoeing and camping, just a couple of hours north-west of Sydney.

Discover the spectacular landscapes of Wollemi National Park, part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. From scenic canyons, towering cliffs, wild rivers and serene forests, there are ample opportunities to be immersed in the beauty of the largest wilderness area in NSW.

In the southeast of the park, pack a picnic and hike down to the beautiful Colo River for lunch to view one of the state’s most picturesque gorges.

Set up camp by the Wolgan River and head out to explore the historic ruins at Newnes, once the site of an oil shale mining facility, or take the kids to marvel at the Glow Worm Tunnel, part of the old railway that once serviced the area. Bushwalkers and rock climbers will thrill at the hikes and climbing opportunities available in this striking, escarpment-bound valley.

In the northwest of the park, Ganguddy (Dunns Swamp) offers a tranquil escape dotted with remarkable pagoda rock formations and plenty of opportunities for easy walks, swimming and canoeing.
