Worimi Conservation Lands includes Worimi National Park along with Worimi State Conservation Area and Worimi Regional Park

Located near Newcastle, the Worimi Conservation Lands are owned and co-managed by the local Worimi Aboriginal community in partnership with NSW National Parks. The Stockton Bight 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, birdwatching or the ever-popular pastime of beach driving. Take a guided tour and check out traditional Aboriginal sites of the Worimi people, take a sand dune safari or go horse riding along the beach. 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.
