Read more about Nangar National Park

Amid the wide open spaces of central west New South Wales, you’ll find the spectacular scenery of Nangar National Park, dominated by the magnificent peak of Mount Nangar to the north. The park’s beautiful wooded hills, easily accessible from Escort Way, create an ideal environment for picnicking, bushwalking, camping and 4WD touring.

Whether you love wildflowers, birdwatching, photography or gazing up at a night sky brilliant with stars, there’s plenty at Nangar to feed the soul. Autumn through to spring offers plenty of fresh and clear days to take long walks, and as the days become warmer, the land comes alive with colour. Don’t miss Terarra Creek, lined with the gorgeous pink honey-myrtle. Keep your camera handy for kangaroos, wallabies, bats, peregrine falcons and wedge-tailed eagles, as well as the breathtaking cliff line and views from Mount Nangar .
