The view of Apsley River at Budds Mare is one of the highlights of the national park; to get here, follow Moona Plains Rd off the Oxley Hwy. There’s a difficult 7 km walking track from the picnic shelter to the Riverside visitor area – it’s very steep in places, and you’ll need to camp at Riverside, organise a pick-up (4WD access only, permit required) or prepare for a strenuous 6 hr, 14 km return walk. Bring your own drinking water to the camping ground and firewood.
