Biamanga National Park – South Coast NSW
Biamanga National park is located 307kms south of Sydney and surrounds the beautiful Sapphire Coast town of Bermagui. The national park is sacred to the Yuin People who maintain their ties today. The park is famous for its deep aboriginal tradition and is now managed by the Aboriginal community.
Highlights of the Park
The highlight of the Biamanaga National park is the Mumbulla Mountain range, which runs through the middle of the park and is the remains of extinct volcanic activity.
The centre of the mountain range is the Mumbulla Falls in which the Mumbulla creek flows from and leads into the Murrah river. The Murrah river flows into the sea at Murrah Lagoon 10 minute drive south of Bermagui.
There is a 225 metre raised walkway suitable for wheelchair access which leads to a viewing platform over the falls. The highlight is the natural water slide and a 4-5 meter jump. The pools and scenery are beautiful with some great opportunities for photographers. There’s some well detailed aboriginal history of the area as well with 2 public bbqs for use near the car park.

Follow this road for 11 km then turn left into Mumbulla Creek Road and follow it to the falls for 13 km. Access to the falls from Glen Oakes Road on the Princes Hwy at Brogo is now closed.
