Read more about Georges River National Park

Georges River National Park, south of Sydney, is a popular place for a family day out in the great outdoors.

The landscape of the park includes striking rock formations, steep forested hillsides, plateaus and riverside flats, providing ample opportunities for picnics, barbecues, fishing and walking.

If you’re interested in birdwatching, be sure to walk the Yeramba Lagoon track – you’re bound to see lots of birds; more than 100 species have been recorded – including pink robins and grey fantails.

It's a good place for some waterskiing, jetskiing and taking a boat out, you can launch your boat from the ramp. It’s also a pleasant place for a spot of kayaking or canoeing, and there are lots of scenic spots you can stop at along the way.
