Kanangra-Boyd National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
The Kanangra-Boyd National Park is only 180 km from Sydney by road, via Mount Victoria and Jenolan Caves.

Adjoining the Blue Mountains National Park, Kanangra-Boyd preserves a large scenic and water catchment area of over 68,000 ha and was once home to the Gandangara people, who inhabited the area before European settlement, leaving a legacy of rock art, campsites and axe grinding grooves.

The park itself is an elevated, undulating Boyd Plateau, that falls away into the labyrinth of creeks, rivers, deep gorges and spiney ridges. This rugged wilderness is accessible by the road from Jenolan Caves to Kanangra Walls, allowing for easy access to vehicle-based camping, bushwalking, and lookouts on the rim of the plateau.

Check out our listing of Kanangra Boyd accommodation. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.

Kanangra-Boyd National Park Attractions

There are three return scenic walks at Kanangra Walls, that start from the car park.

Kanangra Walls (average height 130 m), Kanangra-Boyd National ParkLookout Walk • An easy walk and wheelchair accessible. This ten minute stroll takes you to two spectacular lookouts. The first lookout, overlooks the gorge of Kanangra Creek, where you can see the tops of Mt Cloudmaker and the main Blue Mountains ridge beyond. The second lookout, overlooks the rugged ravines at the head of the gorge and Kanangra Falls.

Waterfall Walk • If you continue on from the second lookout, a track leads down into the gully where Kalang Falls cascades into a deep pool.

Plateau Walk • This is the longest walk and turns off before the main lookouts, taking you out onto the expansive heath-covered plateau of Kanangra Tops. From here, you can soak up the magnificent views of the wilderness, as it unfolds before you.

Limestone Caves • There are undeveloped limestone caves in the park. Cavers must apply for a permit at least four weeks in advance. Contact the Oberon office.
