Buddong Falls is about 60 km from Tumut in NSW. They are an absolute delight to visit and a beautiful walk in to see them. The waterfall is just off the East Bago Powerline Road in the Kosciuszko National Park and is a fairly challenging and difficult 3km walk. There is a dry-weather-only road that leads to Buddong Falls where picnic tables, toilets and water are available. A steep walk provides access to the lower falls. It is about a one-hour return track but is slippery when wet.

There are two sets of falls with the walk to the lower falls is about three kilometres. The lower section is quite steep and is slippery during wet weather. The upper falls are about 20 metres high and the lower falls are cascades about 60 metres high. They occur where harder granite meets softer shales and slates. The shales have been worn away by Buddong Creek.

To get there from Talbingo, you go to the Tumut 3 Power Station and follow the sealed road up the hill for one kilometre and then turn off to the right over a cattle grid and onto a gravel road. This road follows the powerline easement through to the Elliott Way. The Buddong Falls turnoff is 10.7 kilometres along this road and is well signposted. From Batlow, follow the signs to Lake Blowering along Forest Road and into Bago State Forest. Turn right into Snubba Road nine kilometres from Batlow, then left into Browns Road five kilometres further on. It is 10 kilometres from this intersection to Buddong Falls and the road is well sign-posted but is suitable for 4WD vehicles only. It may be impassable during winter.
