Best times to visit
There are lots of great things waiting for you in South East Forest National Park. Here are some of the highlights.
Head to the Bombala River in the early morning or late afternoon to see platypuses - look for circular ripple patterns in the water.
See Nunnocks Swamp and grasslands in its spring bloom glory.
A great time for a walk in the park – try the easy Goodenia Rainforest walk through a lush gully of ferns covered by a dense canopy of tall lilly pilly trees.
After a day exploring, get cosy in front of an open fire at historic Alexanders Hut, Nunnocks Swap.
Drinking water is limited or not available in this area, so it’s a good idea to bring your own.
