Immerse yourself in the beauty of the largest declared Wilderness Area in NSW, the Wollemi Wilderness. Part of the Greater Blue Mountains Area World Heritage Property, the park's towering cliffs, wild rivers, canyons, and serene forests spoil you with outdoor adventures.

Near Windsor, the beautiful Colo River and its picturesque gorges are stunning surrounds for hiking, picnics, riverside camping and canoeing.

Beyond the Blue Mountains, base yourself at Lithgow to explore the magical Glow Worm Tunnel, a favourite with families. The magnificent escarpments and lush gorges offer thrilling hikes and rock climbing opportunities. Stay in the Wolgan Valley or at Newnes for an adventure among the historic ruins of an oil shale mine that are slowly being reclaimed by nature on Newnes Industrial Ruins walk.

Closer to Mudgee, Gunguddy (Dunns Swamp) is a tranquil escape to set up camp, swim and take a guided canoe or kayak tour. Marvel at the remarkable alien landscape of pagoda rock formations from Pagoda lookout walking track.

The north-east of the park, on the edge of the Upper Hunter Valley, is best experienced on a scenic drive or 4WD adventure. You'll find remote camping near Sheepskin Hut, and historic remnants from the area's mining and pastoral days.
