Best times to visit

There are lots of great things waiting for you in Morton National Park. Here are some of the highlights.


Grab an oar and canoe down the Shoalhaven River or the Kangaroo River. Autumn rains create ideal conditions for river paddling, and you'll find good spots for beginners as well as for more experienced paddlers.


Take the Three Views or Granite Falls walking tracks to see wildflowers in colourful bloom.


The rainforests of Morton National Park are a great place to escape the summer heat – try the Erith Coal Mine track at Bundanoon or the nearby Fairy Bower Falls walk.
