Dunns Swamp - Wollemi National Park

The local Wiradjuri Aboriginal people knew a series of waterholes on the Cudgegong River as Ganguddy. Construction of the weir began in 1929 when a reserve of water was needed for the Kandos Cement Works.

Dunns swamp is a beautiful, serene waterway surrounded by sandstone pagoda rock formations & native trees like the Grey Gum, Sydney Peppermint & White Gum. Plenty of wildlife can be seen including kangaroos, wallabies, many bird species, possums & platypus.

There are several bushwalks out from the camping area, while the waterway is a great place for a canoe.
