Wollemi National Park Information
Wollemi National Park is NSW's largest wilderness area, situated on 492 220ha. A spectacular maze of canyons, cliffs and undisturbed forest. Descend to the Colo River on Bob Turners Track and enjoy the beaches in one of the State's longest and most scenic gorges. Interesting ruins at Newnes and a glowworm filled railway tunnel nearby.
Camp at Dunns Swamp, Wheeney Creek or Newnes.
Possibly the most important aspect of Wollemi National Park is that it protects, permanently, the largest remaining forested wilderness in NSW, including the Colo-Capertee river system, used extensively with the surrounding bushland for hardy recreation activities. The Colo River and its gorge is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular in Australia.
Activities in the park include bushwalking, canoeing, liloing, bushcamping.Dunnes Swamp is one of the best camping grounds in the park providing toilets
and firewood, no showers though.
