National Parks and Forests

National Parks and ForestsFrom Bermagui to the Victorian border, the coastal parks with all their vast beauty will enchant you with endless trails, tribal and ancient sacred places. Rainforest gullies and old growth forests teeming with wildlife will excite any visitor. As you take a dawn walk through Ben Boyd, Bournda or Mimosa Rocks National Parks in the tranquil presence of rainbow lorikeets, flocks of yellow tailed cockatoos and kangaroos, you know you have discovered a natural paradise.

Scenery varies from the rugged cliff faces of Red Rock where sea eagles soar on a swift wind to the impressive peak of Mt. Imlay that towers over the backdrop of Eden where sweeping views of the coast can be seen. The landscapes are vast, with rolling hills and tall towering eucalypts covering the rugged terrain of the escarpment.

In the south east, Nethercote Falls, north of Ben Boyd National Park, will serenade you with all its exceptional beauty. The rainforests of Mt. Dromedary and Mumbulla Mountain have many significant tribal beliefs for the Yuin Aboriginals. Wallaga Lake National Park has endless bird species and the fishing is fabulous.
