4X4 Parks Guide – Rover Park, NSW

Rover Park, NSW

Two parks in one! Situated on the Great Dividing Range and at an altitude of 720m, Rover Park isn’t the biggest, but it features a 4WD and motorbike park in one, with the two separated by a boundary.

The family-friendly park has an abundance of accommodation options for those who love to camp or appreciate a little bit more luxury. There’s an entertainment shed with a barbecue, a TV, tables and chairs, and a games room with arcade games for the kids (or like-minded adults) if the weather turns nasty.

Rover Park convoyFor those who want to enjoy four-wheel driving, the tracks are well-signposted and each is graded accordingly. However, in the event of rain, the grading can change dramatically, so common sense prevails here. A small playground near the kiosk will test your flex and tuck.

The bush campsites are cleared and maintained, with long drop toilets available. Fires are allowed and you can collect firewood anywhere on the property. A separate camping area and a motorbike track is positioned away from the 4WDers, for safety reasons. Other activities on offer include fishing, bushwalking, swimming and a 76m waterslide!

Mitsubishi Triton Rover ParkThere is a heap to do here, but remember it is a smaller park compared to the others, and some of the tracks don’t take long to complete. However, it is a family-friendly 4WD park that ticks all the boxes for everything you’d want, and it’s definitely worth a weekend if you’ve never been.
