Read more about Cocoparra National Park

Once inside Cocoparra National Park, the huge sky of the outback is painted with the distinctive Cocoparra Range. This dramatic and rugged place is a haven for bushwalkers, birdwatchers and nature-lovers, with a landscape that’s vividly alive and always changing.

Visit after rain to see the waterfalls and creeks in full flow and come in spring to see the wonderful variety of wildflowers; orchids, wattles and tea tree bring extra vibrancy to the land. Other seasonal delights include the nesting season of the majestic peregrine falcons and the sight of rainbow bee-eaters building their homes in the ground – you’ll know them by their amazing spectrum of colour.

Make sure you take the walking tracks up to the ridge to capture the views of the vast plains and other geological formations. Stay for a bush camp to really appreciate all the park has to offer. It’s an incredibly peaceful place to spend the night.
