Welcome to Goulburn River National Park where you are likely to see eastern grey kangaroos, wombats, emus, red necked wallabies and a multitude of birds including turquoise parrots, wedge tailed eagles and glossy black cockatoos.
Goulburn River National Park is located west of Muswellbrook, South of Merriwa and east of Mudgee. The river is the main feature of the park meandering between rugged sandstone cliffs honeycombed with caves for much of its length. At other places, the river flows beside flat, wide sandy river banks offering easy walking trails.
This park offers many activities for the visitor. Best camping spots for bush camping are Spring Gully and Big River which are close to the river and provide BBQs and picnic tables. Bring your bathers for a dip in one of the many swimming holes or bring the canoe for a paddle along the river gorge. There are many opportunities for spectacular views over the park. Walk the short easy trail up to Lees Pinch Lookout or for the active hiker try Mount Dangar Lookout. Don’t forget to bring the camera!
