Woomargama National Park
Woomargama National Park was gazetted as a national park in January 2001. Covering 24,185 hectares, it is the largest protected area west of the Great Dividing Range. The park is home to a large number of endangered species such as the Booroolong frog and the rare wattle, acacia phasmoides. Birdwatching reveals wonders such as the regent honeyeater, superb parrot and powerful owl.
Access to the park is via Tunnel Road, Woomargama. You can follow in the footsteps of explorers with the Hume & Hovell Walking Track which traverses the park, following the Tin Mines Trail for the majority of its length. With over 100 km of unsealed trails, test the capabilities of your 4WD or mountain bike skills. Visitors are advised to only use park trails and recommended access routes.
The National Park, once a tin mining extraction site, today offers peace and quiet away from the fast-paced world with the Tin Mines and Samual Bollard picnic and camping areas (suitable for backpack and vehicle based camping, not caravans) allow you to indulge in lots of wildlife watching. Both grounds include sealed pit toilets, shelters, wood barbecues (bring your own firewood), picnic tables and rainwater tanks. Horse riding is permitted on park trails, however overnight camping with horses is not permitted.
Spend a day within the park and pack a picnic, or you could just soak up the fresh air on foot, admire the multitude of wildflowers and enjoy the view. From either Hanel’s or Norths Lookout, the vistas are among the most spectacular in the region, providing views of the Snowy Mountains across the Riverina.
Protecting the health and safety of our visitors and staff is the highest priority for NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS). Most NPWS campgrounds, cabins and cottages have started reopening from Monday 1 June, in line with the easing of holiday travel restrictions announced by the NSW Government.
You are now required to make a booking for all campgrounds and campsites in national parks. This includes locations that were previously available for use without a booking. This is necessary to protect our visitors and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Find all the information at NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service website.
ONLY registered vehicles are permitted in Woomargama National Park including dirt bikes and mini bikes.
