Stunning Views of Natural History
Morton National Park

Morton National Park
The pretty little town of Bundanoon is the gateway to the stunning Morton National Park. First mentioned in 1818, it is possibly the first nature reserve in the country.

The park allows camping, and there is car access to park near the start of the trails, or hire a bike and go mountain biking. Bush walkers will not be disappointed by the stunning views or pretty scenery. Note a parking fee of $7 a day for vehicles applies.

There are plenty of easy walks, that even a 4 year old can do - the pretty Fairy Bower Falls being one. For a grander scale, head to the magnificent Fitzroy Falls.

A highlight is heading back after dark to the Glow Worm Glen. A short walk through the bush (bring a good torch) will take you down to a little look out viewing area. Turn off the torches, be completely silent and watch the rock face opposite come alight with tiny sparkling lights. Magic for any eyes to behold, young or old.

Bundanoon is a plastic bottle free town, so if going for the longer walks, make sure you bring a drink bottle. An easy 2 hour drive from Sydney, you could even visit as a day trip - though there's plenty to do, so why not make a weekend of it?
