Australia: The Land Where Time Began

A biography of the Australian continent 

Budawang National Park

A rugged wilderness of steep slopes and remote trails, Budawang National Park is a challenging invitation to the experienced bushwalker. For those who can last the distance, the summit of Mt Budawang reveals a magnificent panoramic view of the southern highlands and the distant coast.

This is a rugged and remote wilderness area, which makes walking in the park suitable for fit and experienced bushwalkers only. Make sure you're equipped for difficult and isolated conditions and carry sufficient water and survival gear. There are formal and informal walking tracks in the park, including a fire trail to the summit of Mt Budawang.

From the 1820s, the southern highlands began to attract settlers and timber cutters, and there are the remains of a saw mill in the park. The coast wasn't extensively settled until the 1890s due to the difficult access.
