Wollemi National Park
Bushwalking, canyoning, swimming and kayaking can all be enjoyed within the spectacular 4870 square kilometres of the Wollemi National Park Also part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, Wollemi National is the second largest national park in New South Wales and contains the largest remaining area of wilderness in the state.
This park really is a wilderness wonderland and popular among experienced bushwalkers who enjoy the challenge of this remote region with numerous short and day walks as well as longer week-long walks that feature picturesque camping spaces for overnight breaks.
The park is 81kms distance from Cessnock and just over 77kms from Singleton with most access points identified on maps. Beware that some of the area is privately owned and permission must be sort prior to access and that most of the fire trails have locked gates so do a little research ahead of your adventure, especially if you intend to explore more than a few kilometres into the park. The park is also home to Colo River that offers a challenge for the experienced kayaker but also a lovely cool down in the crystal clear waters after a hot day’s walk.
