Georges River National Park

Georges River National Park is located on the lower reaches of the Georges River. It comprises several large and small discrete river front areas with a total of 320 hectares. Most of the park consists of steep forested hillsides and plateau areas which are found on either side of the river and its tributary creeks. The national park evolved from reclaimed foreshore lands from the 1950s. In l96l, the area became the Georges River National Park and further areas of foreshore were added and developed for recreation managed by Department of Lands and finally came under the administration of National Parks in April 1992. Mill Creek and Yerramba Lagoon are interesting areas to explore in the park.
