Apple Box Flat picnic area

Apple Box Flat picnic area, in Yanununbeyan State Conservation Area, allows you to enjoy a totally natural environment without having to travel very far from civilisation. Bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it or stock up at the bakery of a nearby town and roll out the thermos for a break from the highway

Apple Box Flat picnic area is situated in an open grassy clearing surrounded by eucalypts such as black sallee, scribbly gum, peppermint, brittle gum and, of course, apple box. In fact, there’s a particularly old and unusually large apple box at the picnic area. Apparently, apple box honey is sensational.

From your picnic area, there’s a whole park to explore if you have the time and energy. Queanbeyan River is a short walk through the bush and there are plenty of fire trails to follow. Take along your binoculars for birdwatching and keep an eye out for wildlife along the way.
