Mid-week is the new weekend in NSW national parks

Environment Minister Matt Kean today announced the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service is launching a special offer making mid-week trips the new weekend in the NSW wilderness.

"To encourage mid-week visitors to our fantastic NSW National Parks, visitors can now save 50% selected full-priced campgrounds, and 25% off selected full-priced cabins and cottages," Mr Kean said.

"With NSW National Park stays in high demand on weekends, mid-week is the ideal time to experience the unique, secluded feeling of waking up surrounded by nature, without the crowds."

"I'm encouraging everyone to escape for an affordable short break or even consider embarking on a longer road trip to discover the lush rainforests, pristine coast and vibrant country heritage that NSW has to offer."

Some of the popular locations where there is expected to be high demand include pitching a tent at either Gambells Rest campground in the bushland of the Southern Highlands, Sheepstation Creek campground among World-Heritage listed rainforest on the far north coast, or beside a flowing river at Gloucester River campground at Barrington Tops.

Alternatively, for an upgraded option, visitors can sleep perched on one of NSW's most sought-after headlands at Cape Byron's Assistant Lighthouse Keepers' Cottages, soak up the history of the gold rush at Hill End, near Mudgee, staying in revamped heritage building Hosies, or book one of the cosy Wombeyan Caves cabins to explore underground wonders.

Offers are available when booking to stay mid-week Monday – Thursday between 21 April and 16 September 2021.
