Moderate track
Starting from the William Mitchell car park on Bungonia Lookdown Road, Bungonia National Park, this walk takes you on a circuit around Bungonia National Park via the Green Track. This moderately easy loop takes walkers around Bungonia National Park, offering an excellent overview of the park, passing through stunning bushland scenery and taking in all the main lookouts and natural environments. The walk initially winds around the plateau through eucalypt woodlands, passing optional side trips to the Mount Ayre Lookout and the Grill Cave. After passing the Bungonia Campground, the walk meanders above Bungonia Creek, passing an unfenced lookout over Bungonia Falls before reaching a car park and picnic area with toilets and gas barbecues. From there, walkers can take short side trails to the Jerrara Lookout, which provides excellent views of Jerrara Falls, and to Adam's Lookout, where a viewing platform extends over the edge of the canyon, providing breathtaking views across Bungonia Gorge. The walk then skirts around the rim of the gorge, passing an optional side trail to Mass Cave before returning to the car park. This walk consists of wide, narrow, gently undulating trails with uneven and compacted natural surfaces. Suitable for average fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
