There are more trails through the spectacular hinterlands of Eurobodalla than you can point a platinum bound, carbon fibre walking stick at… bring comfortable shoes.

Over 70% of the land within Eurobodalla is managed as National Park or State Forest. The majority of which is located within the eastern hinterland – Mogo State Forest, Boyne State Forest, Monga National Park, Deua National Park, Buckenbowra State Forest and Wandera State Forest.

The hinterland is well known by many locals, but largely unknown to visitors despite the richness of its natural and cultural values. There’s a myriad of designated tracks for recreational use, a number of small-scale camping areas, lookouts, historic features and natural sites.

Within Mogo State Forest, historic Aboriginal routes and bridle paths connect and spread through Monga and Deua National Parks. The Corn Trail through Monga National Park provides a 16km bushwalking track and historic route for horseriders. It was originally used by Aboriginal people to travel between the coast and tablelands and later by European settlers who used pack horses to carry supplies between towns and goldfields.

In recent times tracks have been used by horse-riders, bush walkers, four wheel drive enthusiasts, mountain bike riders, trail bike riders, park runners, campers and nature study lovers.
