Read more about Bangadilly National Park
Although easily accessible from nearby Bowral, Bangadilly National Park is relatively untraversed by visitors, making it a great place to get away from the workaday world and feel like you’ve escaped into a remote wilderness paradise.
It’s an ideal park for independent adventurers who are comfortable making their own way around firetrails and unmarked walks with the help of a good map. You’ll be rewarded with great hiking to scenic lookouts with enjoyable birdwatching, wildlife photography opportunities and potential picnic spots dotted all along the way.
Enjoy panoramic views out across the striking Wingecarribe River valley. Other special sights you may be treated to here include platypus paddling along the riverbanks, koalas cuddling up to forest gums, or peregrine falcons soaring across the skyline.
Open forest and woodlands line the dry ridges and slopes while forests of red stringbark, brittle gum, apple box and river peppermint tower in the sheltered valleys and along the riverbanks.
Highlights in this park
Mount Penang loop walk in Guula Ngurra National Park is a 3km unmarked hiking trail that is best-suited to experienced bushwalkers.
