Sometimes referred to as the Dingeldei picnic area, Mount Bouddi picnic area is a great spot for a bush picnic. Roll out the picnic blanket or sit at one of the picnic tables and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere amongst the eucalypts.

If it’s a sunny day, relax in the shade provided by the volunteer-built Dingeldei Shelter, named after a former trustee of Bouddi National Park. Some find the area’s private, rustic setting brings with it the feeling of being a bush pioneer.
