Dharawal National Park

Natural Attractions

Walking and bike tracks, waterfalls and rock pools; Dharawal National Park near Helensburgh, an important place for Aboriginal people, is a great place to spend the day.

Dharawal National Park offers a diverse bushland experience in southern Sydney. Sustained by a distinctive network of creeks, including the ecologically-important O’Hares Creek catchment, this leafy park is of great significance to the Dharawal Aboriginal people and protects a number of special Aboriginal sites.

The park’s ancient landscape is a contrast of tall eucalypts, heaths, swamps, waterfalls and rockpools. There’s plenty to see and do for the day; take a short walk to Maddens Falls, stop by Stokes Creek for a swim and picnic lunch or ride your mountain bike along one of the park’s trails. Dharawal National Park is one of NSW’s newest, so NPWS is working to provide additional low key facilities for your enjoyment.

Don’t forget to keep an eye out for wildlife among the eucalypt trees, frogs and the diverse birdlife flitting through the park’s trees, swamps and skies.
