The Popran National Park is a protected national park that is located in the Central Coast region of New South Wales, in eastern Australia. The 3,970-hectare (9,800-acre) park is situated 56 kilometres (35 mi) north of Sydney.[1] The Park takes its name from Popran Creek which rises in the locality of Central Mangrove and then flows for approximately 24 km in a mostly southern direction till it reaches Mangrove Creek. Popran Creek flows through the Glenworth Valley, also known as the Popran Valley.
