Wendoree Park is a suburb of the Central Coast region of New South Wales, Australia, located on the north bank of the Hawkesbury River 58 kilometres (36 mi) north of Sydney. It is part of the Central Coast Council local government area.

The suburb was originally conceived as a "dream village" by Athol Leeming Spring when he purchased property there around the 1940s/1950s. He gave the site the name "Wendoree Park" and hoped to build a village there of 250 self-contained cottages, overlooking Spencer.[1]
