Didthul - Pigeon House Mountain is OPEN after repairs due to bushfires

Visit Shoalhaven has exciting news A visitor and local favourite the Didthul Pigeon House Mountain (Balgan) walk is officially back open after repairs due to bushfires as of today! If you're planning to visit to get your own famed social shot, make sure to book your stay ahead as camping and accommodation is heavily booked! The walk is steep but well worth the 360 views when you reach the top. Make sure to be mindful of the weather and pack plenty of water! Didthul (Pigeon House Mountain) carries the Aboriginal name that translates to Big Mountain. Culturally, the mountain is a significant area. Newcomer, Captain Cook in 1770, named it as Pigeon House Hill for its shape, clearly seen from the ocean. Local tour organiser Region X advise that the Pigeon House hike is an extremely rewarding experience, the views from the summit to the west into magical wilderness regions of the Budawangs show sandstone cliffs, gorges and escarpments. Views to the east show the amazing NSW coastline stretching as far as the eye can see.

National Parks and Wildlife service grade this track at Grade 4, it's rough, steep and a challenging hike. Region X does not recommend anyone with knee, ankle, heart or lung conditions to attempt the hike. More information on their hiking tour HERE
