Natural Bridge Walk (Budj Bim National Park)


Natural Bridge Walk (Budj Bim National Park)

The Natural Bridge Walk follows an ancient lava flow where the roof has collapsed. At the end of the walk, you will come to a section where the roof of the lava flow remains intact, forming a cavern that you can explore. There's a good chance you'll spot koalas and kangaroos on the walk if you keep your eyes peeled.

Walking track partial closures

Some walking tracks within the park will be affected as works are undertaken to implement the Budj Bim Masterplan.

- The Crater Rim walk is partially closed due to works for the new lookout. Walkers can still walk from the main lookout to the Natural Bridge, but the remainder of the Crater Rim walking track is closed.
- The Lake Surprise walk will be periodically closed - when works are being undertaken on the new lookout above. This is to ensure safety of visitors in case of any falling debris created during works to the lookout.
