Guula Ngurra National Park

Closed due to current alerts 


Guula Ngurra National Park was created in August 2020. It covers an area of 3358ha. View the detailed park and fire management documents.

Guula Ngurra National Park has 3 areas; Tugalong, Little Forest West and Mount Penang. The Tugalong area of Guula Ngurra National Park is currently closed to the public until building works and campground facilities are completed. Located 25km northwest of Bowral in the Southern Highlands, this park was created as part of the NSW Koala Strategy and protects important koala habitat.

The national park is part of an area that is culturally significant to the Gundungurra Aboriginal People. In their language, 'Guula Ngurra' means 'Koala Country'. Country includes everything within the physical, cultural and spiritual landscape. The cultural values of this area will be protected in close collaboration with the Aboriginal community.

As well as protecting vital koala habitat, the park is home to many threatened species and rare vegetation. It's part of an important habitat corridor for the endangered glossy-black cockatoo.

NSW National Parks is working with the community to prepare a plan of management to determine how the park will be managed and visited in the future.

You can explore Mount Penang loop walk, which is now part of Guula Ngurra National Park.
