    Best times to visit

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

    Autumn

    After the heat of summer has subsided, take advantage of the milder weather for hiking in the park.

    Spring

    Enjoy bushwalking in the comfortable temperatures of this time of year when the wildflowers are at their finest. Late in the season, the stands of brittle gum become extremely photogenic as their white trunks turn pink.

    Winter

    Deeper exploration of caves is possible when their carbon dioxide levels reduce in winter as the warm air from within rises and the caves ‘breathe'.
