The Budawangs in NSW’s Morton National Park are a labyrinth of pagodas, passes and mesas legendary in bushwalking circles.

MORTON NATIONAL PARK’S entire length runs along part of Australia’s eastern highlands, starting roughly 100km south-west of Sydney and ending at its spectacular steep southern extremity, about 80km east of Canberra.

Stretching across the winding waterways and rapid runs of the Shoalhaven River, Morton includes spectacular waterfalls, glow-worm caves at Bundanoon and orchid-laced gorges in the Ettrema Wilderness.

Sweep across one of its most magnificent features, the jigsaw of jagged pagodas, mountains and mesas of the Monolith Valley in the northern Budawang Range.
