  • 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 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.
  • Beautiful places for camping and hiking, climbing etc waterfall is a beauty surrounded by those beautiful rocks. really enjoy the down hill, up hill is a really good workout...
  • Gap Creek Falls is a stunning location. The work from the car park is short but it is steep and not for the unsure. For those not afraid of heights there is a precarious path and ladder way to the top.
  • nice spot. busy for a national park. great for hiking
