Declared a National Park early in 2012, this area is truly a local natural wonder, featuring pristine bushland, extensive upland swamps, dramatic sandstone gorges, swimming holes, and rock shelters.
‘Dharawal’ refers to the group of Aboriginal people who have lived in the area for over 15,000 years. No wonder then that the park is one of the richest sites of Aboriginal heritage in Sydney.
Bring along the camera to snap some pictures of:
- Swamp wallaby
- Peron’s tree frog
- Sugar glider
- Southern boobook
- Eastern water dragon and much more!
Explore the park on your own on one of the many trails leading to waterfalls and scenic lookouts. Tours focusing on nature conservation and Dharawal’s cultural history are also available.
