Pigeon House Mountain
Pidgeon House Mountain is located in the Budawangs National Park, also home of Mount Budawang.
Pigeon House Mountain Didthul walking track is one of the best walks in Morton National Park and on the south coast. The walk is in the park’s southern section. The walk is quite steep in parts, but terrific views make it worthwhile. You will hike through forest, heathland and age-old sandstone before coming to the best part – negotiating a series of ladders that lead you to the summit and the spectacular view.
Take in the captivating sight of cliffs and gorges within the Budawang Wilderness, all carved by the Clyde River. On clear days, you may be able to see as far as Jervis Bay and Bermagui. You might even spot a lyrebird along the final portion of the track, where you can also check out rare Pigeon House Ash eucalypts. Enjoy a picnic lunch at the top of the mountain or head back down to the picnic area at the start of the walk for a well-deserved lunch.
