Goongerah is located 70 kms north east of Orbost on the Bonang highway. Nestled between the Errinunda and Snowy River National parks, Goongerah is the perfect place to explore these areas from.
We published this self drive guide with our friends The Wilderness Society Victoria, the drive can be completed as a loop in either direction from Goongerah.
The route features old growth forest walks and visits cool temperate rainforest high up on the Errinundra plateau. Camp sites in the valley in Goongerah, or up on the remote plateau at Frosty Hollow in the Errinundra National Park, offer secluded camping away from the tourist crowds.
The walk to the Summit of Mt. Goongerah (Mt. Ellery) rewards walkers with views from as far as Mount Kosciusko to the mouth of the Snowy River at Marlo. This is only place on mainland Australia with continuous intact natural forest ecosystems from the alps to the coast.
