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.
