Take a step back in time and visit the incredible Popran National Park. From hiking to mountain biking, and horse riding to fishing, there’s plenty to do in this iconic Australian setting.

Boasting 4km of Hawkesbury river foreshore, you can paddle through the mangroves, enjoy a spot of fishing and smell the coastal banksia. The park is steeped in Aboriginal heritage so you can’t help but get in touch with the history of the land.

Popran National Park, on the Central Coast, is just an hour and a half north of Sydney, so it makes for an excellent daytrip or weekend getaway.
