Bungonia State Conservation Area (NSW Australia) covers a strip of the Southern Tablelands from the spectacular limestone country east of Marulan, southwards along the escarpment to the west of the Shoalhaven River.
Central to the area is the Bungonia Gorge – a deep chasm carved in the limestone rocks, which themselves are full of limestone caves.
The area was once part of the ocean floor (which is where the limestone formed) and was uplifted at the time the Great Dividing Range was formed.
