Budawang National Park
Budawang National Park is declared a wilderness area, with hiking, river camping, swimming and scenic views for advanced, well-equipped travellers.
Budawang National Park is wilderness. Rugged and isolated, it's full of steep mountainsides and tall moist forests. There are glossy black-cockatoos in tall eucalypt forests, shallow rivers, and wallabies in patches of grassland.
The park derives its name from one of its dominant features, Mount Budawang – whose name is a variation of the Aboriginal word ‘Buddawong’. The prominence of its peak meant it was used to light signal fires and to observe the movement of people between the highlands and the coast.
Today, this park is perfect for adventurers and experienced trekkers who will love the walking through remote areas and river camping opportunities. If you’re looking for a place to truly get away from the civilised world, Budawang offers a ready haven. Hiking in the park is suitable for fit and experienced bushwalkers equipped with sufficient water and survival gear.
**To keep visitors safe ALL camping in NSW national parks now requires a booking. For day visitors, please plan ahead and visit outside of peak periods (11 am and 2 pm). Check park alerts and visit COVID-19 updates for more information before visiting any park **
