There are lots of great things waiting for you in Culgoa National Park. Here are some of the highlights.
After reasonable winter rains, the park erupts with blooms of native wildflowers, and animals begin to raise their young.
Summer in Culgoa can be incredibly hot, so hiking should be attempted by experienced walkers only. For everybody else, this is a perfect opportunity to take advantage of the coolness of Culgoa River.
This is a great time to settle in at Culgoa River campground, with winter the best time for walking in the park. Wildlife is still abundant and birdwatching is superb.
