Sunday Shorts

Welcome to this weeks edition of Sunday Shorts. Today we take a sneak peek at the large and well dispersed South East Forests National Park in Southern NSW. Straddling the Great Dividing Range just inland from Bega and stretching to the NSW/Victorian Border this 111,000 hectare park has it all from lush rainforest slopes and gullies, picturesque creeks and waterfalls, impressive mountain scenery and quiet picnic and camping areas scattered throughout. It is a beautiful place to visit and it always leaves us in awe of its diversity and beautiful scenery every time we visit. In the north of the park not far off the Snowy Mountain Highway is the enchanting high country wetland of Nunnock Swamp while not far away is the intriguing Alexander’s Hut. It is also possible to follow the original bridle trail down the mountain known as the Postmans Track exiting the forest at the delightful Six Mile Creek Rest Area where a short stroll to the cascades is a must.

Further south and inland from the seaside village of Pambula is the stunning Goodenia Rainforest high up the mountain on the way to Wolumla Peak while further south west there are even more stunning and beautiful scenery to take in including views from Myanba Gorge and a campsite amidst tall forest at Waratah Gully the perfect place to spend a night.
