Dharug National Park by John Yurasek


If you like your bush walks with a touch of heritage, check out the Dharug National Park , which features the Old Great North Road walk, which is a World Heritage-listed walk.

Wildlife Sanctuary


When you are in the National Park, you are sure to have an exceptional day, whether you go for a walk, check out the wildlife, go mountain biking, camp, or head out canoeing near Wiseman’s Ferry in this National Park northwest of Sydney. You’ll be immersed in the rugged bushland of Dharug National Park north of the Hawkesbury River

Dharug National Park covers rugged bushland just north of the Hawkesbury River, with dramatic sandstone cliffs and a variety of natural habitats, and you can head out yourself, walk, cycle or take a guided tour along the 9-kilometre loop of the Old Great North Road World Heritage walk which was built by 720 convicts over ten years between 1826 and 1836. Immerse yourself in history and heritage as well, feeling everything important about this place that would be significant for many.

Wiseman’s Ferry Inn


If you’re a lover of the great outdoors you can canoe or kayak along the Hawkesbury River, or camp at Mill Creek or Ten Mile Hollow under the stars and be part of your own outdoor lover’s dream.

And the park is teeming with bird and animal life. Keep an eye out for gang-gang cockatoos, satin bowerbirds and green catbirds along the mountain slopes. If you’re lucky enough to be camping out, use your torch to see if you can catch a glimpse of the yellow-bellied and greater gliders, and the sugar gliders. And if you can’t see the yellow-bellied glider, you may hear their loud shrieks and gurgling calls.

However you choose to enjoy the Dharug National Park, you will find something to capture your attention and be immersed in a country with a very long history.
