Across its thousands of hectares, Tallaganda National Park plays host to a huge variety of environments. Up at its highest points, you’ll discover subalpine snow gums and even high-altitude swamp. On the eastern side of the Great Dividing Range, you’ll find tall, moist forest dominated by ribbon gum and narrow-leaved peppermint, while on its west slopes are forests of mountain gum.
For the self-reliant traveller, this diversity of environments offers excellent opportunities for bushwalking, orienteering, 4WDing, and mountain biking. There are trails criss-crossing the park, but make sure you’ve got a topographic map – as well as everything else you’ll need - before you set out.
For those wanting to relax, a picnic by Mulloon Creek, some birdwatching and wildlife-spotting – wombats, red-neck wallabies and the spotted-tail quoll are all found here – or overnight camping are all recommended. Listen out for the calls of the powerful and barking owls if you decide to pitch your tent.
Highlights in this park
Easily accessible Mulloon Creek campground is a great place to camp for families, with some basic facilities and a peaceful forest setting.
