As well as being popular with travellers and car tourers, this shady picnic spot is ideal for families and bushwalkers attempting the myriad of tracks in Morton National Park. Wander up to George Boyd lookout to be rewarded with exquisite Shoalhaven coastal views, or try George Boyd Rainforest walking track.
