Dasyurus picnic area is a peaceful picnic spot, set on the banks of Mongarlowe River. It’s a tranquil place to stop on your drive to the coast from Canberra or a great day trip from Batemans Bay or Braidwood.

Pack a thermos and enjoy a hot cuppa as you admire the superb natural surroundings. Take the kids down to the river to see if you can spot a platypus feeding in the river pools. Try your luck fishing, or just sit by the riverbank and relax as you listen to the gentle waters flowing by.

There are plenty of nearby walking tracks to explore. Corn Trail walking track starts here, but you’ll need to come prepared for a challenging six-hour journey. For a short walk, take Penance Grove walking track where you’ll discover the wonders of ancient rainforest wandering along an easy boardwalk.
