Turon National Park is located along a section of the Turon River in central New South Wales, Australia. Proposed as an area worth protecting in 1983, the park was not established until 2002. The park is 150 km north-west of Sydney, approximately 5km west of Capertee, near Lithgow, New South Wales.
Turon National Park was one of the sites of the 1851 gold rush and remains from this era are still evident. Sheoak grows along the river and a variety of gums cover the slopes. A large variety of native birds live within the park and red wallabies spend the day on the sandstone tops and descend at dusk to the valley. The Park is at a relatively high altitude due to the park's location within the Great Dividing Range. Sub-zero temperatures are common in the cooler months.
