You’ll need a 4WD to reach this small campsite, located between Bombala and Bega, but the effort’s well worth it. You may even have this tranquil South Coast spot all to yourselves.
Pitch your tent in the forest by a sandy bend of Tantawangalo Creek, then enjoy a dip in one of the creek’s fern-lined swimming holes. When you’re ready, there’s plenty to explore by 4WD.
Retrace the footsteps of yesteryear’s postmen and cattle drovers with a drive along Postmans and Cattlemans tracks. Check out the short walk and viewpoint at nearby Six Mile Creek campground. The original Tantawangalo Mountain Road to this site was forged in 1860.
Stock up on fuel and pack a tasty lunch to explore more of South East Forest National Park. Historic Alexanders Hut is the perfect backdrop for a picnic. If you’re feeling energetic, stretch your legs on the extensive walking track network around Nunnock Swamp and Grasslands.
Back at Postmans campground, enjoy the solitude by your crackling campfire. As night falls, keep an eye (and torch) out for the local nightlife including sugar gliders, swamp wallabies, and long-nosed bandicoots. Then fall asleep to the sleepy 2-note tune of the southern boobook owl.
