Koonadan Historic Site

Open, check current alerts 


Koonadan Historic Site was created in February 1988. It covers an area of 22ha. View the detailed park and fire management documents.

The Koonadan area is part of the traditional lands of the Wiradjuri people, the largest Aboriginal tribe in NSW. In the late 19th century the community was forced to move to a mission. Stories of an ancient culture and recent suffering make this place alive with emotion.

The picnic shelter has signs that tell the story of the site and artwork by local Aboriginal people. Thanks to recent revegetation works around the area, there are many bush-tucker plant species at the site.

These maps give a basic overview of park attractions and facilities, and may not be detailed enough for some activities. We recommend that you buy a topographic map before you go exploring.
