WHAT'S ON THIS PAGE:

 

INTRODUCTION:

Brisbane Water National Park is located only 40km north of the Sydney CBD, containing some 12 000 hectares of wilderness along the Hawkesbury River and Broken Bay. This area was important for the original Aboriginal owners (Gurringai) and for the first European settlers.

The park contains areas rich in Aboriginal engravings and art, tool grinding groves, etc. One of these areas is the Bulgandry site, just off the Woy Woy Road. This site is found on a large rock surface not far from the road.

The park protects varying forest types, heath and mangrove areas. Found in the park are wallabies, koalas, echidnas, platypus, possums, gliders and many bird species.
