Local Attractions

Minnamurra Rainforest

Budderoo National Park.
This park is home to Minnamurra Rainforest Centre, a multi-award-winning tourism destination which allows you to explore the rainforests that once blanketed the Illawarra region. Boardwalks and paved tracks take you along the forest floor and up through a range of rainforest environments, on your way to the magical Minnamurra Falls.

Up on the plateau above the rainforest, the park offers excellent walking tracks with views across sandstone heaths and woodlands and towards the Illawarra coast. The lookouts and picnic areas at Carrington Falls, where the Kangaroo River plunges over the escarpment, are well worth a visit.

Saddleback Lookout

Kiama’s glorious Saddleback Mountain offers a photographer’s dream. Located just 10 minutes south-west of Kiama and 600 metres above sea-level, Saddleback Mountain Lookout is one of the area’s greatest natural attractions. On a clear day this superb lookout offers breathtaking views from the sand hills of Cronulla in the north to Pigeon House Mountain at Milton in the south. While the north-facing viewing platform (off main car park) is excellent, be sure to checkout the recently opened southern platform further up from the main car park.
Hoddle’s Trail also starts here – a 60 minute bush-walk up to the edge of the escarpment.
