"My grown-up kids go off to Bungonia by themselves now. They bushwalked and abseiled with us as children and teenagers, and now they're just fully into caving."
Whether you’re looking to do an easy walk through woodland or wanting to push your body to the limits scaling a wall of limestone, Bungonia National Park is the place to visit. Known as the adventure capital of the Southern Tablelands, what at first appears to be a dry plateau quickly opens itself up to reveal a diverse and dynamic landscape filled with natural surprises.
Drop into our park office when you arrive to decide where you’d like to start exploring. It’s only a short walk on Molly O’Neil track to The Lookdown lookout, and the scenic view of Bungonia Slot Canyon from Adams lookout is equally awe-inspiring. What about packing a picnic lunch and doing a day’s hiking through the breathtaking canyon you’ve just seen from above? Or come prepared to tackle something really challenging, like abseiling, rock climbing, canyoning, or caving one of the 200 or so ‘wild’ caves. You need to be experienced and have your own equipment.
