For a unique wilderness holiday, head to Capertee National Park. Located west of Blue Mountains, Capertee protects a range of wildlife and plants found nowhere else on earth. Independent campers and adventurous families enjoy walking and mountain biking through this unique region while discovering both Aboriginal and European heritage.
Renowned for some of the best birdwatching in the state, the protected woodlands along the fertile river flats attract regent honeyeaters, woodland birds, and birdwatching enthusiasts alike. The park is also home to native Australian wildlife like kangaroos, wallaroos, wallabies and gliders.
Choose from a night under the stars at the campground, or enjoy the heritage charms of Capertee Homestead. Capertee National Park is also a great stopover if car touring around neighbouring Turon National Park and Gardens of Stone National Park.
