Fire affected area

Some areas of this park were affected by fire in 2019/2020. You’ll notice some changes to the landscape, as well as signs of recovery. Some areas may remain closed for longer to allow habitat to recover or because we’re repairing park infrastructure. Stay safe with these after-fire tips for visitors.

Head to Nattai National Park for bushwalking or backpack camping in a remote wilderness setting not far from Oakdale and Mittagong, and an easy drive from Sydney.

Read more about Nattai National Park

Nattai National Park has plenty of astonishing beauty on offer, including Nattai River, the dominant Hawkesbury sandstone cliffs, and the inspiring views out over the park from Mount Jellore.

Throughout the park, you’ll spot a large variety of animals, like wallaroos, emus, wallabies, grey kangaroos, wombats, and dingos. There are also over 160 species of birds in the area, including some truly magnificent owls and birds of prey. Keep your eyes open for platypus in the river, squirrel gliders and koalas in the trees, and rock wallabies on the ground.

You can enjoy rugged hiking in an amazing setting of giant, craggy sandstone cliffs and unspoilt bushland nestled amidst the peace and tranquillity of the valley. Try Starlight’s trail or Couridjah Corridor walk. There’s also a remote campground by the Nattai River known as Emitts Flat, which can be found at the end of Starlight’s trail.
