Read more about Mount Imlay National Park

Mount Imlay National Park is a peaceful pocket of remote bushland, narrow rocky ridges and deep gullies, just 30km south of Eden on NSW’s far south coast. It’s a perfect place for those who want to get back to nature and bask in the peace and quiet of the bush.

The park is part of a system of national parks and reserves that protect the coastline and ranges between Moruya and the East Gippsland region of Victoria, along with nearby parks like South East Forests National Park and Nadgee Nature Reserve. As a symbol of this, its skyline is dominated by Mount Imlay, or ‘Balawan’, as it’s known to local Aboriginal people,

Take a scenic drive through the bush and spend the afternoon picnicking under the trees. If you’re a fit walker and up for a challenge, why not venture off and walk to the summit of Mount Imlay? You’ll enjoy birdwatching along the way and incredible filtered coastal views from the top.
