  • We visited the Watagans primarily to go 4WDing. However there are loads of bush walking tracks and other attractions i.e.; look outs, dams, etc. We also saw lots of goannas, wallabies and different bi...  more »

  • This place is stunning. The nature walks are intimate and fascinating and the campsites are always well kept. There are long drop toilets - a bit smelly sometimes but what do you expect? There are bbqs and fire pits and ample camp spots available in each of the 2 campsites. If you love nature or want some spectacular photography opportunities then this is the place to go. Or if you need a break from civilization and technology, head out - there is no phone signal so the is plenty of peace. When we have stayed possums came up so close we were able to pat them and they came into our vestibule! We also patted the wallabies which was a real delight for both adults and children alike.
  • Great place to take the family for a drive . Tons of things to do whether its a picnic , sight seeing and bush walking. Heaps of tracks accessible by both 2wd and 4wd
  • Difficult drive being a first time 4x4 driver but great information from the information centre in Pokolbin
  • Great MTB facilities at Awaba. Haven't seen the surround park yet.
  • Great Park, lots of different 4wd tracks, great camping spaces and picnic areas amazing views. definitely set aside a fair amount of time to do it some justice as it is very extensive.
