Boonoo Boonoo National Park (pronounced 'bunna bunoo'[2]) is a national park in New South Wales, Australia, 571 km north of Sydney and 26 kilometres north east of Tenterfield off Woodenbong Road.

The Boonoo Boonoo River passes through the park and includes a 210-metre waterfall and a rainforest filled gorge. Bushwalking, swimming and bush camping are among the attractions of this area.

Boonoo Boonoo is the Aboriginal name given to the area which means 'poor country with no animals to provide food', however, the environment changed and it became home to Kangaroos and Wallabies.[3]
