Information

Explore sandstone scenery on a grand scale throughout the park. To the south, George Boyd Lookout, Little Forest Plateau and Pigeon House Mountain offer views of the coastline and the Budawang wilderness areas. The recently upgraded Tianjara Lookout, on the Nowra-Braidwood road, provides views of Tianjara Falls. To the north, Fitzroy Falls and Belmore Falls plunge off the plateau into rainforest gullies. On the western side at Tallong there are wonderful views of the Shoalhaven Gorge from Badgerys and Longpoint lookouts.
Experienced walkers will find extensive opportunities for remote bushwalking from several locations, especially in the spectacular Budawangs, and easier walks at Fitzroy Falls, Belmore Falls, Little Forest and Bundanoon. You can drive to a range of breathtaking lookouts. Backpack camping more than 300 m from roads is permitted throughout most of the park, and there's car-based camping at Gambells Rest at Bundanoon - facilities include hot showers (bookings essential and fees apply). There's some provision for caravan access (three sites only, no power).
Access Multiple entry points. 150-200 km south-west of Sydney. 17 km east of Moss Vale on Nowra Road. Bundanoon is 17 km south of Moss Vale. Vehicle entry fees apply at Fitzroy Falls and Bundanoon.
