High above Warragamba Dam, on a Blue Mountains escarpment, Burragorang lookout and picnic area is a viewing point for nature’s great beauty. From up here, you can look across one of New South Wales’ most precious resources – that huge body of water far below provides about 80 per cent of Sydney’s water supply.

What you’ll see much closer is equally as impressive. Noisy glossy black cockatoos hanging from the casuarinas; perhaps one of the shy and beautiful lyrebirds will be scratching in the leaves below the trees.

For the kids, there’s some excellent bike riding along the quiet sealed roads, as well as a playground. Pack the esky well, because there are barbecues and plenty of picnic tables, all ready for the perfect bush lunch.

If you’re looking for a unique venue to hire for a wedding or special event near Camden and Campbelltown, Burragorang picnic area and lookout is an idyllic place to celebrate your special occasion.
