Well worth the drive from Braidwood or Canberra, historical relics more than 170 years old are scattered throughout this park, including a waterwheel originally used to generate electricity. The park was the location of a logging camp during the 1830s, the evidence of which can still be seen today. The surrounding native bush of Tallaganda State Forest includes majestic stands of brown barrel, making bushwalking, four-wheel-drive tours and mountain bike riding a favourite in the area. Bird watching is also popular, with the rare olive whistler a possible sighting. From Braidwood, follow Krawarree Road to Nithsdal, before taking Parlour Creek Road into the forest. Follow Coxes Creek Road through the pine plantations before turning into Lowden Road which will take you to the forest park.
State forests provide many established camping areas. Some contain space for a number of tents or caravans, fireplaces and toilet facilities. Many State forests have picnic sites with facilities such as tables and BBQs. Please use established fireplaces wherever possible.

CAMPFIRES AND FIREWOOD
In most areas, firewood is not provided, so you are advised to bring your own, or a gas BBQ. Be aware of fire regulations, especially Total Fire Bans and promptly report all bushfires to the emergency services by dialling triple zero (000).
Solid Fuel Fire Bans apply in many State forests over summer, banning campfires and barbecues using wood, charcoal or other solid fuel. Campers are asked to bring gas appliances and prepare for days when total fire bans are declared. When planning your trip, look at the current closures and notices, http://www.forestrycorporation.com.au/visiting/closures or contact the local Forestry Corporation office http://www.forestrycorporation.com.au/about/contact-us for more information.
