The Combienbar Valley/Club Terrace/Errinundra National Park

Errinundra National Park offers tranquil walks and scenic drives.  It preserves the largest remaining stand of cool temperate rainforest in Victoria as well as ancient tall, wet eucalypt forests. The majority of the park is accessible only in the drier months. In winter, rain and snow generally make the unsealed roads impassable.

Things to do:

- Enjoy a walk through the heart of the rainforest at Errinundra Saddle

- Enjoy superb views from Mount Morris, Ellery View and Ocean View Lookout.

- Admire ancient forests of plum pine and the granite tours of Goonmirk Rocks.

- Explore a range of walking tracks for a closer view of the forest giants.

Please be mindful that before you visit these areas, conditions can change in parks for many reasons.

For the latest information on changes to local conditions, please visit the relevant park page on the Parks Victoria website.

Be 'Bushfire Ready' in the great outdoors. Refer to the Bushfire Safety section on the Parks Victoria website for tips.

Boydtown/Eden/Merimbula/Pambula/Candelo

For a comfortable and scenic drive from Bemm River along the Princes Highway, you can enjoy the following locations.

Approximately ten kilometres before Eden, turn right off the Princes Highway to visit the historical Boydtown

Boydtown is a village on Twofold Bay near Eden, on the far south coast of New South Wales, Australia.

It was the original settlement in the bay, founded by Benjamin Boyd in 1843 to service his properties on the Monaro Plains.

The remains of whaling stations and the local landmark Boyd's Tower, a stone spotting tower used to look for whales, are all nearby.

Boyd imported sandstone from Sydney to construct a lighthouse on south head. He also commissioned inns and churches, housing and store rooms, wharves and stock-yards.

When Boyd's finances collapsed, the town was abandoned from the 1840s until the first renovation of the Seahorse Inn in the 1930s.

In modern times, Boydtown is the smaller of the two towns in the bay, consisting mainly of housing, tourist caravan parks and the more recently  refurbished Seahorse Inn. 

Returning to the Princes Highway you will then head toward Eden, where you can enjoy lunch at the wharf or visit the whale museum and learn all about 'Old Tom', the whale.  A story which is well worth learning, which attracted ABC 'Australian Story' coverage years ago.

Pambula is the next town along before Merimbula, where you can turn off the highway and travel approximately 5 kms to view the pristine Pambula beach. Pambula is a coastal village huge in history, its peaceful lakes and idyllic river mouth is a refreshing change from the hustle and bustle following the discovery of gold near the township in the 1880s.

Merimbula is situated on the majestic waterways of the Sapphire Coast.  Shopping, Eateries, Sporting Clubs, Fun Parks etc.Pambula is a coastal village big in history, its peaceful lakes and idyllic river mouth a far cry from the hustle and bustle following the discovery of gold near the township in the 1880s.

Just past Merimbula on the way to Bega, take the Pambula turnoff and travel along to the pretty little hamlet known as Candelo, nestled amongst the hills.   If you visit the first Sunday of the month you will be lucky enough to be there when their market is held. Stallholders from far and wide travel to sell their wares, produce, goods etc at this very popular event.
