Woomargama National Park

Highlights:
This new park near the Murray River is the largest protected area west of the Great Dividing Range in south-eastern NSW and contains the largest remnant of box woodlands on the South-West Slopes. It's an important haven for a large number of threatened and endangered species, such as the regent honeyeater, swift parrot, powerful owl, brown toadlet and carpet python. It's also home to the very rare Acacia phasmoides wattle. Parts of the reserve are close to 1000 m above sea level, giving stunning views over the Murray River and areas west of the park.

 

Activities:
Norths Lookout on the Tin Mine Trail provides extensive views over the Riverina. The Tin Mines picnic and camping area (suitable for backpack camping) is a stopping point on the Hume and Hovell Walking Track.

 

Access:
25 km south-east of Holbrook, 40 km west of Tumbarumba. 4WD access (no 2WD) when dry, and no access at all when wet.
