Located only 9 kms from Cessnock is Werakata National Park. The park is loved by locals and tourists alike. Owing to its proximity to Sydney, it is an ideal day trip for weekend getaways. There is a lot to do at the park like bird watching, cycling, hiking and picnicking. There are great cycling and walking trails and in spring they’re lined with purple, orange and yellow wildflowers. One can bring along a basket of food and relax at the Astills Picnic Area, which has sturdy tables and shaded sitting. One can also cycle along Deadman’s Mountain Bike Loop or Astills Trail, both of which are easy, flat and suitable for any fitness level.

The park is also a great place for bird watchers as there are great opportunities to spot brightly coloured bush birds flying low as well as several species of birds like swift parrot, regent honeyeater and robins.
