Porters Creek Dam, NSW
7.0 km (1.5 hrs )
After the challenging climb to the summit of Pigeon House Mountain in the morning, it was a much easier hike out to the equally impressive views of the Budawangs from the Little Forest Plateau.
Mount Bushwalker track first passes through a waterlogged swamp, which had an amazing variety of wildflowers when I visited, before exiting onto a rocky plateau. A short walk takes you to the edge of the escarpment with views of Shrouded Gods Mountain, The Castle, Byangee Mountain, Talaterang Mountain and Pigeon House Mountain. There are options to explore further, but with the temperatures hitting 40 degrees, I decided that two bushwalks was enough for the day!
