“It’s such a delightful spot for a picnic – surrounded by rows of lovely tall trees, it feels like a country scene from the 19th century.”

You’ll find plenty to keep you occupied at picturesque Cattai Farm picnic area, located near Cattai campground.

There’s plenty of grass to lay out your picnic rug, or you can set up in one of the large picnic shelters if they are free. You can book one of the seven picnic shelters ahead of time – they make a great place for birthday parties, family celebrations and reunions.

When you’ve polished off your barbecue or picnic feast, there’s plenty to explore in this part of the park. It’s an easy walk to the historic homestead where you can take a peak into Australian history, and there’s great canoeing and fishing to be had along the Hawkesbury River – so remember to bring your canoe, kayak or rod. Plus, there is a tonne of room for children to run and ride around the picnic area, and there’s also a small playground. What more could you ask for on a family day out?
