Mitchell Park picnic area is a great place to pause for a bite and take in the bushland scenery of Cattai National Park – particularly after working up a sweat on one of the park’s great walking tracks.

Cattai Creek is a great spot for fishing, so you can try your hand at catching some lunch. Nearby the creek, you’ll find barbecues, picnic shelters and plenty of grass to lay out a picnic rug.

If you’re feeling energetic after lunch, you could try some canoeing or kayaking along the creek, head off on another walk or simply relax with a book or your thoughts.
