Offering a short walk through some of South Coast NSW’s most delightful bushland, George Boyd Rainforest walking track leads you beneath towering cliffs of sandstone.

Begin this sun-dappled track at George Boyd picnic area, then climb the steps and wind your way along the base of looming sandstone walls, stopping to gaze at the mighty coachwood trees along the way.

See if you can spot any wildlife as you meander through the verdant rainforest and towering turpentines. Looking carefully, you might see anything from wallabies and echidnas to lyrebirds and cat birds in this part of Morton National Park, so remember to bring your camera as well as your binoculars if you’re keen on some birdwatching.

At the end of the track, simply scale a short ladder to enjoy unrestricted views of the beautiful Shoalhaven coastline. Return via the loop walk to the picnic area and, if you’ve planned ahead, to a tasty picnic lunch.
