Bundanoon is an Aboriginal name meaning “place of deep gullies” and was formerly known as Jordan’s Crossing. Bundanoon is colloquially known as Bundy / Bundi.
Bundanoon is the ‘Quintessential Southern Highlands Experience’ and the perfect village alternative to larger towns such as Bowral, Mittagong and Moss Vale. Just over 90 minutes travel time from Sydney and Canberra, Bundanoon is easily accessible via the M5 and the M7 motorway. Once you arrive you can literally explore all the attractions on foot or by bike. The area is brimming with things to do and close to the vineyards, wineries and other villages in the Southern Highlands.
A popular bushwalking and cycling destination, Bundanoon is on the edge of Morton National Park, Bundanoon has attracted tourists since the 1920s with spectacular wilderness, wonderful walking trails, starry nights and fine guesthouses.
Perfect for short breaks, weekend escapes and longer sojourns you can also travel by train to Bundanoon and rent a bicycle from Ye Olde Bicycle Shoppe near the station; best to reserve bicycles in advance to avoid missing out.
From pretty waterfalls to stunning escarpment lookouts, you’ll find plenty of things to do and see in the national park. An enchanting attraction is the Fairy Bower Falls, a one hour loop walk, and you’ll be delighted with the scenic views on the Lovers, Riverview and Mount Carnarvon walking tracks.
In the evenings, a wonderful event of nature occurs in Glow Worm Glen. Hundreds of larvae of fungus gnats produce a light from a chemical reaction. The best time to see the glowing larvae is December to February. Point your torches down when approaching the viewing platform.
