Cattai campground is a great place for a weekend getaway with family or friends and a good place to stop with your campervan on a driving tour.
Once you’ve picked the perfect campsite and pitched your tent, it’s time to start exploring. Kids will love the wide open space that is great for bike riding, playing and running, plus the campground is right near the Hawkesbury River, meaning fishing, canoeing and kayaking opportunities are all nearby. There’s also the historic Cattai Homestead, a short walk or drive from campground. It’s an important part of Australian history so be sure to check it out.
You’ll probably be woken by the call of birds in the morning, and you may see a kangaroo peeking at you through the bushland on a morning walk to the lookout over Hawkesbury River.
