The restoration of the old quarry site at Tunnel Road picnic area is both pretty and impressive. Lots of native plants and bushes – flowering common fringe myrtle with its pale-pink blooms and stunning yellow bitter-peas among them – have been planted to ensure that this quiet spot is as scenic and beautiful as it is peaceful.
Located at the main entrance to Woomargama National Park, this is a great spot to cook up a barbecue. After your feast, stretch your legs with a short walk around the picnic area, or a ride on your mountain bike. Many animals, including wombats, echidnas and wallabies can be seen around here, so the kids will love it.
There is also a map of the entire park on display, so if you’re really enjoying your time at Tunnel Road picnic area, you can work out where else you might like to explore.
