Located north of the Murray River, off the highway between Albury and Holbrook, the Woomargama National Park is an expansive area popular for hiking, camping and 4WD adventures.

Getting to Woomargama

Access to the park is easy and well signposted. Travel along Tunnel Road around 10km from the township of Woomargama. There’s parking and a picnic area at the park entrance, with the Samual Bollard Campground just a few hundred metres further into the park. You’ll need a 4WD to visit Woomargama.

Points of interest

Serious hiking and mountain biking enthusiasts can follow the epic Hume and Hovell walking track. The track itself is 426km, and cuts through Woomargama National Park, following Tin Mines Trail and linking Tin Mines Campsite to the Samual Bollard Campground.

Deep in the park is Norths Lookout, which offers stunning 180-degree views of the Snowy Mountains, the Murray Valley and Holbrook. You’ll need a 4WD or a couple of days of hiking to get there, but the view is worth the effort.

Woomargama really comes alive in the spring, with both the wildflowers (fringe myrtle, happy wanderer, native fuchsia, yellow bitter-peas) and birds (regent honeyeater, powerful owl, superb parrot) brightening the landscape with spectacular colours.

Camping in Woomargama

There are two campgrounds in the national park: Samual Bollard and Tin Mines. Both campgrounds offer picnic tables, barbecues, fresh water and toilets.

Camping is free, although bookings are essential, and a $6 booking fee applies. Come well prepared as these campgrounds are remote.

Take a day trip

For the largest protected area west of the Great Dividing Range spend a day exploring Woomargama National Park in Greater Hume only 30 minutes from Holbrook or just under an hours’ drive from Albury Wodonga.

Be sure to check the NSW Parks and Wildlife Service website for the latest information before visiting this National Park.
