Sara’s Top Family Outings Around Macarthur and Wollondilly

We recently asked a local mother from around Macarthur and Wollondilly, NSW, Sydney, what their favourite family outings were. Sara was able to share a stack of great locations for families to check out if they live in the area or are travelling to the area! 


Many of the Dams around our area have picnic areas and play areas for children. The ones closest to us are Warragamba, Cataract, Cordeaux, Nepean Dam


Burragorang lookout is also really nice, you can picnic and do a short walk. There is a basic playground and toilets there now.

National Parks:

Thirlmere Lakes National Park – very close to Picton
Dharawal National Park is near Campbelltown and has a walk to the Minerva Pool which is really pretty.


Farm Stay:

Mowbray Park Farm Stay is an authentic farm experience for kids who live in the city. They have hay rides, horse riding, sheep shearing, archery, etc


For those who are not afraid of speed there is the Picton Kart Track. I think quite young kids can use this as well.

Botanical Gardens:

Mt. Annan Botanic Garden is a wonderful place for kids and big people. You can walk, ride bikes, picnic, and there’s a great kids playground and a cafe..


Wirrimbirra is a less known wildlife and plant nursery that has native animals and Dingoes.  It is about 10 minutes drive from Picton on the way to some of the dams I mentioned above
