Yengo National Park

Take in the spectacular views, immerse yourself in World Heritage-listed wilderness, and visit Aboriginal cultural heritage sites at Yengo National Park.

Yengo National Park is a rugged landscape of steep gorges and rocky ridges, just waiting to be explored by 4WD, car, mountain bike or foot. And it’s all less than two hours drive from Sydney or Newcastle.

Part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, Yengo has spectacular views, remote wilderness and unique Aboriginal cultural heritage. There’s an abundance of Aboriginal sacred sites and rock engravings to discover.

The historic, convict-built Old Great North Road in the south-east of the park is also a reminder of the park’s more recent colonial history.

Get off-road on 4WD trails or grab a mountain bike and visit for the day. Experience the remoteness for yourself by visiting Finchley lookout or walking the Big Yango loop trail. Stay overnight at Big Yango Homestead or enjoy the quiet of the bush by camping under the stars.
