It is an area of historical, cultural and natural significance. Warraweena Private Conservation Park offers a range of experiences for all visitors.

Many sites reflect the occupation of Warraweena by aboriginal peoples, miners and pastoralists. Several old mine sites, including Sliding Rock, can be found within the boundary of the park, Sliding Rock (Cadnia) was a thriving township in the 1870’s and traces of some of the old buildings can still be seen. Shepherd’s huts, some of which are available for overnight stays, are reminders of he pastoral history of Warraweena.
In 1996 Warraweena ceased being a sheep station and the lease was bought by Wetlands and Wildlife, a non-profit company, listed on the Commonwealth Register of Environmental Organisations and to this day is a private conservation park whose main goal is the recovery and conservation of native flora and fauna.
