Discover the Dharawal National Park and learn about Indigenous heritage on a guided walking tour.
About the tour
There’s never been a better time to get outdoors and discover Campbelltown’s beautiful Dharawal National Park, with the popular Guided Indigenous Tours happening in 2019.
Held on the second Saturday of every month between February and November 2019, the tours are led by an Aboriginal Discovery Ranger and provide a wonderful look at the beautiful Australian landscape from a Koori perspective. The tours are led by National Parks Aboriginal Discovery Rangers, who share personal insights as they take participants on a cultural journey.
The Indigenous Tours take one of two popular tracks at Dharawal National Park:
The 9am walk traverses the O'Hares Creek Lookout track which is a grade 1 walk, 2.8km return. This is an inclusive walk and guests of all abilities and ages are welcome, including guests in prams, wheelchairs and mobility scooters. The bulk of the walk surface is a sealed pebble road with small sections of concrete path and metal mesh grates (at the lookout).
The 11.30am walk takes the more challenging trail to Minerva Pool. This track is a grade 3 track and unsuitable for guests with additional mobility requirements.
Dharawal National Park is a great destination for a day in the great outdoors, with walking and bike tracks, waterfalls and rock pools, and the chance to spot native flora and fauna.
