Best times to visit

There are lots of great things waiting for you in Cathedral Rock National Park. Here are some of the highlights.

Autumn

Within the tall, moist forest, kangaroos poise in the mist amongst granite boulders as morning light streams through the canopy,making this the ideal time of year to capture that perfect photograph.

Spring

Feast your eyes on this season's wildflower displays, when heath shrub and ground plants show you what they're really made of. Bring your walking shoes and a macro lens.

Summer

The relatively high altitude of the park offers cool respite from the summer heat of the region's western slopes and coastal lowlands.

Winter

Rug up and come prepared as winter temperatures plunge overnight. The rewards for braving the cold are sparkling frosty mornings and clear sunny days. Winter is also the peak time for the male lyrebird to call with most intensity as he courts a mate.
