Bungonia is a small town in the Southern
Tablelands in New South Wales, Australia in
Goulburn Mulwaree. In 2006, Bungonia had a
population of 258 people.
Bungonia is made notable only by the presence of
the oldest Roman Catholic church in Australia and
the beautiful Bungonia State Recreation Area
which not only has a series of sublime views down
into the gorge carved by the Shoalhaven River but
also has a huge limestone quarry which is a
reminder of how much damage can be done to an
otherwise pristine landscape by open cut mining.
