Deua National Park

Deua National Park (73 km south): together with Wadbilliga Park which adjoins it, is one of the largest areas of natural land left in the eastern part of the state. The Park consists of wet and dry sclerophyll forests and patches of sub-tropical rainforest lining spectacular mountain ranges dominated by Big Badja (1362 m) and Mother Woila Mountain (1104 m). The park is also notable for its limestone caves. The main attractions, Big Badja, The Big Hole, Marble Arch and Wyanbene Caves are all found along the western boundary of the park.

The highlight of any trip to the park is to inspect the Big Hole, a limestone collapse which is nearly 100 metres deep and 50 metres wide. The walk to the Big Hole involves crossing the upper reaches of the Shoalhaven River and walking through some particularly beautiful countryside.
