The parks are in the traditional Country of the Dharawal1 People, and Aboriginal people have cared for this Country for thousands of years. The naming of the parks reflects the Aboriginal history of the area and the connection that Aboriginal people have with this place.

The parks are on the Woronora Plateau and encompass almost the entire catchment of O’Hares and Stokes creeks. The landscapes range from extensive upland swamps in the south-east to forested sandstone plateaus with dramatic rocky gorges and waterfalls in the north-west.
