Werakata NP Accommodation

6 km north of Cessnock, enter along Lomas Lane off Allandale Road (Wine Country Drive). Highlights: The park has a rich history of Aboriginal occupation and more recently forestry operation. Today it conserves a diversity of plants and animals including a number of threatened species and endangered ecological communities. Enjoy a picnic at Astills Picnic Area and explore the Kurri Sand Swamp Woodland. A great way to see the park is by bicycle. One of the best routes is to depart from the picnic area, cycle north along Deadmans Trail and then return to the picnic area via Gibsons Road. The Forestry Hut off Old Maitland Road is one of the few remaining huts of this type and function and shows how forestry work was undertaken when transport was not as efficient as it is now.
