It’s hardly a surprise that the vast expanse of Woomargama National Park, which is the largest protected area west of the Great Dividing Range, is home to a large number of endangered species. Birdwatching reveals wonders such as the regent honeyeater, superb parrot and powerful owl.
If you’re camping here, then you can indulge in lots of wildlife watching. There are two campgrounds, both of which offer peace and quiet away from the fast-paced world. You're unlikely to have a more soothing picnic.
Hume and Hovell walking track cuts through Woomargama, so you can pick up its trail and go hiking through the bush. There are plenty of unsealed routes to test the capabilities of your 4WD or your cycling skills on a mountain bike. But you could just soak up the fresh air on foot, admire the multitude of wildflowers and enjoy the view. From Norths lookout, the vistas are among the most spectacular in the region.
