Wooglemai Environmental Education Centre

Wooglemai EEC

Wooglemai Environmental Education Centre is located on the eastern edge of Nattai National Park which is a part of the World Heritage Listed Greater Blue Mountains National Park. Wooglemai is located on Sheehys Creek Road (just off Barkers Lodge Road), approximately 7 kilometres south of the township of Oakdale.

The centre is a NSW Department of Education Public School and one of 24 Environmental and Zoo Education Centres in NSW. It is the only residential Environmental Education Centre in the South West Sydney Region.

The site is owned by Guntawang Catholic Youth Centres Inc and is leased by the NSW Department of Education.

The  traditional custodians of this site and surrounding areas were the Gundungurra and the Dharawal people. The centre takes its name from a Gundungurra man, Wooglemai, who appears in the 1802 diaries of the explorer Francis Barrallier.
