Kanangra-Boyd National Park, Camping, Weather, Walks & Lookout Map
This park on the outskirts of the city constitutes part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, giving adventure seekers a memorable experience. On arrival, you will be immediately welcomed by a magnificent view of the natural scenery. From the grand sandstone cliff faces at the Kanangra Walls to the mount Cloudmaker, there are no shortage of views to enjoy.
The best place to soak in this splendour is the Kanangra-Boyd Lookout; a viewpoint that is easy to access. This lookout point is unfenced, so visitors can enjoy unparalleled views of the country’s remarkable landscapes. Kanangra-Boyd Lookout is also accessible for wheelchair users.
From the lookout, use the Waterfall Walk to get to the valley where the Kalang Falls plunge downwards and make a beautiful display of mist. Take on the Plateau Walk and challenge yourself to an invigorating stroll through nature. This walking track leads to the Kanangra Wilderness.
If you choose to cycle instead of walking, you can always enjoy the Mount Emperor Loop. This 12.5 kilometre ride across the Boyd Plateau is an exciting opportunity to explore and discover the park’s hidden gems.
If you are interested in camping at Kanangra-Boyd National Park, make sure to check out the Boyd River Campground. Pitch your tent below the towering snow gum trees and sleep to the sound of Morong Creek’s waters gently flowing downstream. Amenities available at this remote camping site include picnic tables, BBQ facilities, toilets and parking. Bookings are not required.
The best time to visit is in Spring or Autumn when the sun is out, but the temperatures are not too hot. Summer is the best time for camping and canyoning and winter is bet for just day trips, as it becomes very cold with the possibility of snow.
There is a fee to enter the park at $8 per vehicle per day. The park has coin-operated pay and display machines, so it is best to bring the correct change. Please also note that pets and domestic animals (other than certified assistance animals) are not permitted.
