A young boy is in a critical condition after falling from a cliff face on the NSW south coast last Saturday.

The 12-year-old was at Gerringong Falls in Budderoo National Park where he had been bushwalking, mountain bike riding and swimming with family and friends.

Emergency crews were called to the area on Saturday afternoon after the boy fell between 20-30m from a cliff face onto the base below while climbing up a track.

He was treated at the scene for serious head and body injuries before being winched out.

He was then flown to Sydney Children’s Hospital at Randwick where he remains in a critical condition.

Police have launched an investigation.
