Waa Gorge picnic area

Natural Attractions

At Waa Gorge picnic area, you can enjoy the woodland wildlife over a long lunch before going on to explore the picturesque surrounds of Mount Kaputar National Park.

Formed over millions of years, the deep gorge and its tributary gullies are strewn with boulders and the ghostly trail of old waterways. Flowers bloom in spring, the shade is cool in summer, and woodland birds make it home at every time of year.

Waa Gorge picnic area offers a terrific base for exploring this quiet gem, with two picnic shelters nestled near box pine forests and surrounded by the peaks of Grattai Wilderness Area. Carry lunch and a pair of binoculars, or bring some sturdy shoes to follow Mill-bullah walking track and Waa Gorge walking track deep into the rock formation.

**To keep visitors safe ALL camping in NSW national parks now requires a booking. For day visitors, please plan ahead and visit outside of peak periods (11am and 2pm). Check park alerts and visit COVID-19 updates for more information before visiting any park – www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au **
