A Christmas Day Visit to the Monga National Park

Leave a comment

Today has been a wonderful day of non-stop rain in Mongarlowe … a very special Christmas present.

We visited the Monga National Park today as our between meals activity.

The Monga National Park is:

20 km south-east of Braidwood and 40 km west of Batemans Bay, this park conserves a high diversity of forest types including cool temperate rainforest (dominated by the ancient plumwood trees), warm temperate rainforests and old growth eucalypt forests.. It provides a crucial link between Deua National Park and Budawang National Park, helping to establish a 350-km corridor between the Victorian border and the Illawarra Escarpment.

We stopped at Penance Grove and were completely alone there. One guide to the park suggests that:

In a world of ever shrinking rainforests and climate change, this is unquestionably an area of increasing environmental importance that everyone should experience (especially children) before…

On our way around the park we found our path closed by a fallen tree …

… so we took the long way round to Reidsdale and Araluen in the delightful rain.
