Best times to visit

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


Cooler days make it an ideal time to undertake some of the longer walks. It's also a good time to wander around Seaton's Farm to investigate and compare machinery used back then to what we have today.


A great time to see the wildflowers that blanket much of the ground. Venture up to the lookouts to see the sprawling surrounding farming country.


Enjoy a free barbecue at Ben Hall's campground.
