The Location

Cattai campground is a great place for a weekend getaway with family or friends and a good place to stop with your campervan on a driving tour. Once you’ve picked the perfect campsite and pitched your tent, it’s time to start exploring. Kids will love the wide open space that is great for bike riding, playing and running, plus the campground is right near the Hawkesbury River, meaning fishing, canoeing and kayaking opportunities are all nearby. There are shady spots to enjoy a barbecue dinner and the picnic area is nearby for lunchtime activities. There’s also the historic Cattai Homestead, a short walk or drive from campground. It’s an important part of Australian history so be sure to check it out. You’ll probably be woken by the call of birds in the morning, and you may see a kangaroo peeking at you through the bushland on a morning walk to the lookout over Hawkesbury River.

Enjoy a weekend away camping at Cattai National Park along the Hawkesbury River. Go walking, camping, canoeing and bike riding before cooking up a barbecue feast.

Great spot close to Sydney and surrounds. About 40 mins from most places in Sydney. Nice open and flat camp grounds with good shady areas. Good facilities for the kids playgrounds and access to the river. Also has well maintained toilet and shower blocks with hot water. Enjoy.



Very nice spot, only one other camp was being used at the time we were there, Monday July 4th. Lots of kangaroos and great listening to the birds. Bring your own firewood. Hot showers available but water pressure not great.
