Cattai is a National Park in New South Wales, located 45 km north-west of Sydney.
Its campground is the best place for a weekend getaway with family, friends or in my case, a Pathfinder group (similar to a scouts group) consisting of teens between the age of 13 and 20 year from Penrith, NSW.
The park has toilet and bathroom facilities, and guess what - it has hot showers too! You just have to bring your tents, food and friends to enjoy nature with. Kangaroos roam the campgrounds freely and the Hawkesbury River is just a few steps away.
You can bring your kayaks, jet skis and boats to cruise up and down this magnificently beautiful river. And to top it off, you can even tag along your fishing line and have some fresh fish for dinner around the camp fire.
It is affordable and all you have to do is book in advance, just $10.50 for an adult per night and $5.50 for a child per night. But if you're not staying overnight, you can just take a day trip to the park.
There are a lot of picnic spots available and it even has BBQ stands per shed. Just bring along some wood for fire and meat for the BBQ and you're good to go.
There is a park with swings and slides for kids to play, so parents won't have to stress and can just relax and enjoy the scenery.
I'm already planning my next camp; maybe I'll see some of you there!
