Nattai National Park is located south of the Blue Mountains and is adjacent to Kanangra-Boyd National Park  which we have featured before. It is just a 1 ½ hour to 2 hour drive from Sydney. It is located 150 km south west of Sydney. This protected park along with seven other national parks all make up the UNESCO World Heritage listed Greater Blue Mountains Area. We previously featured some of the national parks in the region north of Sydney in New South Wales including the Greater Blue Mountains Area National Parks as well as other national parks in the region.  We featured Berowra Valley National Park, Marramarra National Park, and Dharug National Park  and Yengo National Park. Previously, we highlighted several other National Parks in this region including Blue Mountains National Park, Ku-ring-ga National Park, Royal National Park, Brisbane Water National Park, Gardens of Stone National Park, and Wollemi National Park.  Today, we are featuring Nattai National Park. Visiting a national park helps contribute to their protection and is an excellent way to be able to enjoy the Australian wilderness. Nattai National Park includes the Nattai River, the Little River, Allum River and the Wollondilly River, the dramatic Hawkesbury sandstone cliffs, Mount Jellore and is heavily forested. Even though it is this close to Sydney, it is one of the more remote national parks and is not as well visited as many of the other national parks of this region. If you are into remote wilderness exploration, then Nattai National Park is for you. While there, you can also visit the Nattai State Conservation Area, the Burragorang State Conservation Area, Lake Burragorang, the Bargo State Conservation Area, the Wombeyan Caves, and the Yerranderie State Conservation Area.
