Fancy something a little different this Australia Day?

Why not go on a free guided bushwalk through one of the region's most picturesque spots.

Wollondilly Council is hosting a bushwalk through Thirlmere Lakes National Park as part of its Australia Day festivities this year.

The event has limited capacity, so interested residents are urged to secure their place now.

Participants will get to check out the shire's unique biodiversity and learn about different ways to use native plants.

Each walker will also receive two native tube stock plants.

Wollondilly mayor Matt Gould encouraged nature fans to book their space in the bushwalk, which kicks off at 1.30pm on January 26.

"Wollondilly is home to beautiful, natural environments and this bushwalk is a great opportunity for people to explore what Wollondilly has to offer locally and gain a greater understanding of our rich native flora and fauna."

The event is funding through the National Australia Day Council, reflecting the theme of 'Reflect, Respect, Celebrate - We are all part of the story'.

Head to wollondilly.nsw.gov.au to secure your place in the limited bushwalk.
