Opening times
Munmorah State Conservation Area is open between 5.30am and 9pm (daylight savings time) and 5.30am to 6pm (other times).

While away a couple of hours in this shady, secluded Munmorah haven. With cabbage tree palms enclosing the area, it’s a peaceful and intimate setting for a barbecue or picnic.

Before you settle in, or after you’ve lunched, why not explore the surrounding rainforest with an amble along the pretty Palms circuit track? The short loop walk starts and finishes right here at the picnic area.

Free gas barbecues and several picnic tables add to the appeal of this delightfully positioned picnic spot.
