  • 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 »

  • A relatively off the beaten path feel for National Park close to suburbia. Would be good for 4WD (mostly dirt roads) and mountain biking. Did a short loop walk through the rainforest which was good.
  • I'm a local and I've been here before and it is like a dream there are trees every were and you can paddle your feet in the water it's amazing. You can walk under all the big trees and it is really shady and cool there is lots of little ponds and streams as well. I don't recommend going if it's going to rain or if it is raining because the roads get filled with water and you get blocked in and you won't be able to get out. So go on a hot day and enjoy it.
  • Great 4wd day out
  • It's such a beautiful part of the world where you can feel like you're anywhere when you're less than 30 minutes from major shopping centres. A true hidden gem of the central coast and hunter
  • Nice nature place to walk around and camp. NATURE!!!
