13 Acres Australian Bush Surrounded By The Mogo State Forest
The Original Gold Rush Colony is rich in native Australian fauna and flora. The natural bush and the many lakes attract birds such as Ducks, Rosellas, Galahs, King Parrots, Herrons.
You might spot the resident Echidnas, Goannas, Water Dragons and more. At dusk the sky comes alive with the sight and sound of flocks of Australian lorikeets, kookaburras, rosellas and sulphur crested cockatoos flying through to roost for the night.
Pack a picnic and stroll through the Gold Rush Colony's 13 acre property during the day or the early evening and enjoy the sounds of nature and the visual wonders of the Australian bush.
The Gold Rush Colony is surrounded by the Mogo State Forest on three sides. Enjoy a short bushwalk around the boundaries or venture further for an enjoyable 1.5 hour bushwalk from the gate.
The richness of the natural landscape, beaches and coastal lands of the Eurobodalla, Batemans Bay and NSW South Coast region are all just a short distance away. So you nature lovers, hikers and bushwalkers will have plenty to do when on a longer holiday break on the South Coast.
