Monga Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 62 photos

Firstly, I would like to express a big thank you to George (VT member tiabunna) who gave me a great tour of this place and surrounding areas as well.

Somewhere along the King's Highway linking the town of Braidwood to Batemans Bay in New South Wales state of Australia is a hidden gem of Monga National Park.

The main highlight of Monga National Park is the Penance Grove area with its ancient Gondwanan landscape and tree ferns which are only found it this single spot and nowhere else in the surrounding areas.

Hope the information and photographs of the VT page will be useful to you.

Here is a photograph of the tree ferns at Monga National Park. These ancient plants need shade, cool temperature and moisture to survive.

There is a river called Mongarlowe River which runs through Monga National Park. Along this river are several picnic areas for the family to relax during the weekends and holidays.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Unique landscape, well preserve ancient forest
  • Cons:Off the beaten path, need a car to reach (no public transport)
  • In a nutshell:Unique Landscape in New South Wales, a hidden gem indeed
