Mount Imlay is a national park in New South Wales (Australia), 387 km south of Sydney, named after the Imlay brothers, who were early pioneers to the district.[1] It is accessed from the Princes Highway, south of Eden, New South Wales.

The vegetation is mostly eucalyptus forest. The Imlay Mallee and Imlay Boronia are rare plants growing near the mountain's summit. However, there is a two hectare rainforest remnant surviving in a fire free gully. It consists mostly of Black Olive Berry trees. The park contains large populations of wombats and superb lyrebirds.
