Bundanoon

A popular bushwalking and cycling destination, Bundanoon is a delightful village in the beautiful Southern Highlands. On the edge of Morton National Park, Bundanoon has attracted tourists since the 1920s with spectacular wilderness, wonderful walking trails, starry nights and fine guesthouses.

Perfect for short breaks, weekend escapes and longer sojourns, Bundanoon is less than two hours’ drive from Sydney and Canberra. You can also travel by train to Bundanoon and rent a bicycle from Ye Olde Bicycle Shoppe near the station; best to reserve bicycles in advance to avoid missing out.

From pretty waterfalls to stunning escarpment lookouts, you’ll find plenty of things to do and see in the national park. An enchanting attraction is the Fairy Bower Falls, a one hour loop walk, and you’ll be delighted with the scenic views on the Lovers, Riverview and Mount Carnarvon walking tracks.

Fairy Bower Falls, Morton National Park

In the evenings, a wonderful event of nature occurs in Glow Worm Glen. Hundreds of larvae of fungus gnats produce a light from a chemical reaction. The best time to see the glowing larvae is December to February. Point your torches down when approaching the viewing platform.

The roads and trails winding through the national park are enjoyed by cyclists. The Bundanoon cycling route is a great ride for the whole family. You can enhance your cycling skills with Wild Horizon Outdoor Tours, which offers one-day courses, private lessons and overnight camps.

Places to stay suit various budgets, from a youth hostel to guesthouses, cottages and a health retreat. Close to the vineyards, wineries and other villages in the Southern Highlands, check out the events calendar for festivals in the region. The Bundanoon Highland Gathering Festival is in autumn.
