Tallaganda National Park
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.
