Long Description:
From Berlang Road, wade across the Shoalhaven River and follow the Big Hole Marble Arch Walk along a dirt track for about 1.7 km to the Berlang Big Hole. This pleasant walk is signposted and will go through dry eucalypt forest and unique nana heath, with expansive views of the park along an undulating dirt track with some short steep inclines.

This is an extraordinary limestone marvel; a roofless cave which is over 100m deep and 50m wide. The vast open chasm can be viewed from the lookout and, if you’re there in the early morning or late afternoon, you may see its resident lyrebird come out from its ferny grotto to feed.

In 1862, a young man called Boxall used four long saplings, a rope and a candle to explore a deep chasm out in the bushland of southeast NSW. The rubbly bottom he eventually landed on was 96m from the surface.
