What to see and do in Nelligen
The picturesque, historic village of Nelligen is a real retreat - a peaceful little village set along the banks of the pristine Clyde River. The soothing tranquillity of the river is matched by the silence of the surrounding forest. Nelligen's once bustling streets are now quiet and serene.
The Clyde River is an angler's dreamland. Bream, flathead and jewfish are popular catches and the river is famous for its succulent Clyde River oysters. Getting out on the water goes hand in hand with a visit to Nelligen, whether that's casting a line, kayaking, swimming or just a fun day boating.
Nearby national parks and state forests showcase the magnificent beauty of this region and offer plenty of walking trails - some taking in deep rainforest valleys, tree-lined foreshores or high mountain ridges. Serious bushwalkers might like to follow the route of early settlers for trading and explore the challenging Corn Trail that traverses some demanding terrain of the Monga National Park.
Strolling through Nelligen's tranquil streets offers you the chance to experience some of Nelligen's interesting history. You can still find reminders of the pioneer times and the gold rush that briefly visited the region. The charming little pub is the perfect spot to have a cold one and relax or have a tasty, hearty meal.
Nelligen has long been a favoured destination for houseboats for weekend getaways or longer term escapes where you are the master and commander on the tranquil Clyde River. Ashore there are quaint bed & breakfasts, great camping, cabins and self-contained waterfront units. From some, casting a fishing line can be achieved from the comfort of your balcony.
