Abercrombie River National Park is situated off the Goulburn-Oberon Rd, 30km north of Taralga. Recreational opportunities include four wheel touring, fishing, camping, canoeing and bushwalking.
Abercrombie River National Park was gazetted in 1995 as part of a nature conservation strategy aimed at maintaining the State’s bio diversity. It protects an important part of remnant bushland within the south-western central tablelands.
The park offers a number of 4WD only fire trails and there are no walking tracks however the rivers and creek lines offer a chance to explore new areas. There are four camping sites within the park at Bummaroo Ford, The Sink, The Beach and Silent Creek.
The rivers and creek systems within the park provide habitat for trout cod and Macquarie Perch, which are totally protected species. River blackfish, silver perch and the Murray cray are also found which are regionally rare. Introduced trout may only be caught during the trout season from the October long weekend to the June long weekend.
