Bouddi National Park is located on the Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia, 44 km northeast of Sydney. A section of the national park extends into the sea creating fully protected land, shore and marine habitats. The Park contains one of the last temperate rainforests on the Central Coast, Fletchers Glen.

Bouddi National Park was originally known as Bouddi Natural Park. It received its name at the second meeting of the park trust held on July 5, 1936. Other names considered were Maitland Bay Park, Cape Three Points Reserve and Gerrinbombi Park. The reason for the choice was that Bouddi is the authenticated aboriginal name of the most conspicuous feature of the district and appears on map as early as 1828. Bouddi is the Aboriginal word for the heart. The trust had been founded the year earlier to manage the reserve and had representation from the NSW Federation of Bushwalking Clubs and Erina Shire Council.

In 1967, the park (by then totalling about 1310 acres) was dedicated as a national park under the newly passed legislation and was renamed Bouddi State Park. Its management became the responsibility of the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, and soon afterwards the trust was reconstituted as an advisory committee. On 1 January 1974, the National Parks and Wildlife Act dispensed with the category of State parks and Bouddi was renamed Bouddi National Park.
