Munmorah State Conservation Area is a park for all seasons. Beautiful, sandy surf beaches, craggy coastlines, tranquil bays and dazzling ocean views make this a place to return to time and again.

Bushwalking, camping, fishing, surfing and swimming are just some of the many activities you can enjoy at Munmorah. Bring your binoculars to spot passing whales in winter and keep an eye out for some of the incredible bird species that call this park home – you might see a bar-shouldered dove in the coastal dunes or the southern emu wren on the low coastal heaths.

Part of the Sydney Basin, Munmorah State Conservation Area illustrates the impressive geology of the region – the views are spectacular and it's no wonder, they’ve been millions of years in the making.
