Details

First reserved in 1898, the 31,000 hectare park contains vegetation and fauna adapted to extremes of weather, as a result of its sub-alpine location. As you drive and walk throughout the Park, you will see evidence of the recent fires, but you will also see the vivid colours as species begin to regenerate. There is also still plenty of wildlife such as Lyrebirds, Eastern Rosellas, Wombats and Swamp Wallabies; however we do ask that you drive carefully when moving throughout the park. When you're here please don't hesitate to call into the Park Office Visitor Centre, 300m from the Chalet turn off.

For bookings of more than 6 people for a site, at Lake Catani - please call 13 1963.
