Blue Gum Hills Regional Park

Natural Attractions

Blue Gum Hills Regional Park is a great family day out. Learn about the park’s mining heritage on a school excursion, or enjoy a barbecue in peaceful bushland, and then explore the maze, walking tracks or mountain biking trails.

Blue Gum Hills Regional Park provides a delightful day out for Newcastle residents and visitors. In a protected bushland setting, your family and friends can enjoy barbecue areas, play equipment, a maze and plenty of green space to refresh the soul. If you’re feeling active after lunch you can play cricket, go bike riding down one of the many trails or enjoy one of the easy-access walking tracks to check out the mining heritage of the park.

Don’t miss the TreeTop Adventure Park if you feel like getting right up into the forest canopy.
