Parr State Conservation Area

Parr State Conservation Area, in the Hawkesbury region of New South Wales, is a great place for camping, hiking, cycling, guided tours, and 4WD training and touring.

Whether you’re a multi-day hiker, keen mountain biker or 4WD fanatic - or aspiring to be one - Parr State Conservation Area is a great place to visit and explore the wilder side of Hawkesbury sandstone country. Womerah Range trail allows you to traverse the area between McDonald Valley and Putty Road and, along the way, enjoy scenic views back across the valley and adjoining Yengo National Park.

Heartbreak Hill campground offers a remote camping location set within a peaceful setting of bracken fern and tall eucalypts. Lyrebirds, kookaburras and goannas are commonly seen (and heard) around the site.

For those who’d rather not go it alone, join one of the National Parks and Wildlife Service guided Discovery walks, talks or tours held throughout the park.
