Lowden Forest is in the middle of Tallaganda State Forest which straddles the Great Dividing Range and extends for a distance of around 50 km.
The landscape ranges from dry, open woodland to vast forests of eucalypts. This is a great place to view a wide variety of gums; from scribbly gum, to brown barrel, messmate, peppermint, and ribbon gum. It's also home to a wide variety of native animals.
Hidden in a green fern gully in the forest is an old logging camp from the 1930's known as Lowden Forest Park. Remnants of the camp remain today and includes a water wheel once used to generate electricity for loggers located in this region.
The park has amaneities such as toilets, wood BBQs, picnic tables and drinking water.
You can drive right into Lowden Forest Park, and from there set out on two, easy, well-signposted walks. A pleasant relaxing way to spend a sunny day out in the great outdoors.
