Visit the multi award-winning Minnamurra Rainforest Visitor Centre and experience the splendour of the rainforest at beautiful Budderoo National Park.

The friendly staff in the Minnamurra Rainforest Visitor Centre are experts on the area and can offer lots of great information.

While you’re there, be sure to check out the interpretive signs and Aboriginal artefacts on display. You might also find that perfect little present or souvenir in the Centre’s gift shop!

Then it’s time to wander the network of elevated walkways through the rare remnant rainforest that once reached throughout the Illawarra. Feel your senses awakening as you listen to the birds, feel the spray of the waterfalls and spot rainforest residents – perhaps the superb lyrebird, eastern water dragon or swamp wallaby.

There’s also a picnic area by the river so pack your hamper and enjoy a barbecue in this splendid environment.

You can also drive up to the plateau above Minnamurra Rainforest and discover jaw-dropping views from Jamberoo lookout or bring your mountain bike and ride the 24km Budderoo Track – you’ll see wildflowers blooming in late winter and spring.
