Experience Nature in Thirlmere
Thirlmere is a small country town in Sydney's south, famous mainly for its rail heritage.
The park has enormous scientific value and so only low impact activities are encouraged here such as bushwalking, swimming, kayaking or canoeing.
Explore bushwalking tracks throughout the unspoilt eucalypt valleys and winding creeks at the Thirlmere Lakes National Park and go swimming in one of the parks' five freshwater lakes.
Being quite a sheltered area, the park is home to a wide range of freshwater inhabitants including platypuses, jellyfish and a wide variety of water birds, as well as a large population of wombats.
Enjoy the region's picturesque natural surrounds on a scenic drive around the Wollondilly area or check out the region from the air with a trip to the Sydney Skydiving Centre.
