Incredible National Park with hundreds of different areas to explore and impossible to visit in one day (may in one week). You can find from cascades to explorer shacks to rainbow eucalyptus ... It deserves a visit.

An easy 6 km stroll which takes in some of the best that Namadgi National Park has to offer. Kangaroos aplenty, and Aboriginal rock art. This is an out-and-back walk on a well marked, easy path. The walk takes you through open grasslands and small...More

We thought this would be like other National Parks where you go to the information centre and collect a map describing length and difficulty of a selection of walks and make a decision on what to do. Not so. No maps. Nobody behind the counter...More

Yep, those answers are all correct. NNP is free and open all the time, however some of the access roads are closed from time-to-time if there are hazards.
