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.
- You’re encouraged to bring gas or fuel stoves, especially in summer during the fire season.
- Where there are no toilets, please ensure you dig a 15cm deep hole and bury all toilet waste. Please also ensure you’re at least 100m away from any watercourses.
