If you're looking for a quiet place to get back to nature, you'll love Mongarlowe River picnic area. Nestled under the shade of eucalypt forest in the heart of the park, this sheltered area is an ideal place to begin exploring Monga's rich habitats.

Enjoy lunch at one of the picnic tables before taking an easy stroll along Waratah walking track to the gently flowing Mongarlowe River. Unwind to the soothing sounds of the water flowing and keep your eyes peeled for platypus swimming in the river.

In October and November, the distinctive bright red Monga and Gippsland waratahs flower, attracting birds and insects that feed on the sweet nectar, making this a fantastic spot for birdwatching.
