Worimi Regional Park

Worimi Regional Park is one of our favourite walks. In 2007, the New South Wales Government granted Crown lands at Stockton Bight to the Worimi Local Aboriginal Land Council and leased them back as three conservation reserves Worimi State Conservation Area, Worimi National Park, and Worimi Regional Park. The three areas allow for different uses while conserving Aboriginal heritage sites and the natural vegetation.

Dogs are allowed in the Regional park, and there are a network of tracks through the bushland to the Stockton Dunes near the Sygna wreck.
