Rutherfords picnic area

Natural Attractions

Situated between Nimmitabel and Bemboka, this tranquil picnic area is an ideal spot for a break on a car tour of the beautiful the South Coast region. Just off the Snowy Mountains Highway road in South East Forests National Park, it’s the perfect pit stop on a holiday road trip offering the chance for some wildlife spotting and birdwatching.

Unpack the picnic hamper and enjoy a leisurely lunch as you listen to the chatter of whipbirds, cockatoos and bellbirds. Explore the nearby creek and you’ll discover towering tree ferns that line the banks. You might be lucky and spot a wallaby or lyrebird darting through the bush.

If you fancy stretching your legs, nearby Rutherfords Creek loop walking track offers a boardwalk through the surrounding tall forest.
