Visiting Bundanon and Riversdale

Bundanon Trust operates across two spectacular rural properties on the Shoalhaven River: Riversdale and Bundanon. Approximately 15 to 20 kms west of the town of Nowra


Bundanon Trust puts the health and safety of visitors and staff as its highest priority. We are closely monitoring all information and advice relating to COVID-19 and have decided to temporarily close to the public.

As we adapt to the current COVID-19 health emergency in Australia, we will continue to share our collection and property and connect with audiences through digital initiatives.

Both Bundanon Trust properties (Riversdale and Bundanon) are registered wildlife refuges.

On 1,100 hectares, Bundanon Trust hosts a rich diversity of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and feral animals. We work closely with National Parks and Wildlife Services to protect and conserve the native plants and wildlife that live on our properties.

When visiting, please do not bring your domestic animals (pet dogs & cats etc.) onto our sites. This is for the safety of our native wildlife, as well as your pets.

Certified assistance animals accepted.
