Namadgi National Park includes eight peaks higher than 1700m and offers excellent opportunities for bushwalking, mountain biking, fishing, horseriding, rock climbing, abseiling and viewing Aboriginal rock art. There is camping available at Honeysuckle Creek, Mt Clear and Orroral River; bookings must be made through the Namadgi visitor centre.
There are numerous Aboriginal sites in the park, including paintings at Yankee Hat, some dating back at least 21,000 years. The area's European history dates back to the 1830s when settlers cleared the valleys for farming. Namadgi National Park was created in 1984.
