Information

This park is part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. Vast gorges, high lookouts and wild and scenic rivers lend Kanangra-Boyd's wilderness a rugged and dramatic grandeur. Thurat Spires, Kanangra Walls and Mt Cloudmaker provide sandstone scenery on a majestic scale.
For experienced bushwalkers there are plenty of opportunities for extended walks and backpack camping. Most of the park is declared wilderness, so group sizes and activities are restricted. Wildlife abounds at Boyd Crossing, where car-based camping is available. A pleasant 10-minute walkfrom Kanangra Walls carpark takes you to a lookout over the park. The carpark toilets, lookout and Boyd River camping area are all wheelchair-accessible.
Access 180 km west of Sydney near Jenolan Caves on Kanangra Road (unsealed but suitable for 2WD). Vehicle entry fee applies.
