Read more about Worimi National Park

Worimi National Park – along with Worimi State Conservation Area and Worimi Regional Park – is part of the Worimi Conservation Lands.

Located near Newcastle, the Worimi Conservation Lands are owned and co-managed by the local Worimi Aboriginal community in partnership with NSW National Parks. This significant landscape is home to an extraordinary number of ancient cultural sites.

If you’re visiting for the day, you’ll find there is heaps to do; fishing, whale watching and birdwatching, as well as the ever popular pastime of beach driving. There are also Aboriginal and historic sites to see, and don’t miss the gigantic Stockton dunes; the largest moving coastal sand dunes in the southern hemisphere.

With so much to do, you might need to extend your stay. A range of accommodation options are available within a short distance of the park - contact the Port Stephens Visitor Information Centre for more details.
