Overview

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.

World Heritage-listed Wollemi National Park offers a dramatic setting for scenic walks, drives, wildlife spotting, canoeing and camping, just a few hours north-west of Sydney.

Immerse yourself in the beauty of the largest declared Wilderness Area in NSW, the Wollemi Wilderness. Part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, 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, Newnes campground in the Wolgan Valley, is a great base to explore historic mining ruins and the magical Glow Worm Tunnel, a favourite with families. The magnificent escarpments offer thrilling hikes and rock climbing opportunities.

Closer to Mudgee, Gunguddy (Dunns Swamp) is a tranquil escape to set up camp, swim and canoe. Marvel at the remarkable pagoda rock formations on one of the easy walking tracks.

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.
