Read more about Cattai National Park

Cattai National Park is a fantastic place for a family daytrip or a weekend getaway. There are two parts to the park: the popular Cattai Farm area, flanked by the mighty Hawkesbury River, and the quieter Mitchell Park area.

Each section offers a fantastic experience in the great outdoors; Cattai Farm is great if you’re looking for a weekend camping trip, some canoeing or a big family barbecue. There’s also plenty of space for games and for children to ride bikes. History buffs will be interested to know that this parcel of land is an intact land grant given to a First Fleet settler – be sure to stop by the historic sites within this part of the park.

Mitchell Park is more secluded, so it’s the place to be if you’re looking for a relaxing afternoon in the great outdoors. It’s also a good spot for fishing – you might catch carp or bass. If you feel like stretching your legs, there’s 5km of walking tracks that takes you through native vegetation, including scribbly gum forest and tall bloodwoods.

Cattai’s closeness to Sydney suburbs makes it an excellent choice for a day out and a great place to take the kids on their first camping trip.
