We can’t take the credit for our natural beauty - but we can proudly boast about it.
There is an abundance of natural attractions to be experienced in the Strathbogie Shire.
The Goulburn River system, Nagambie Lakes, Gooram Falls, the cascading Polly McQuinns, and unique granite rock formations in the Strathbogie Ranges are just some of the magnificent array of scenery on offer.
Bushwalkers will enjoy our peaceful bushland scattered throughout the Shire, which brings with it opportunities to escape the traffic and enjoy some bird watching, horse-riding, and mountain bike riding. The ascending, curving roads of the Strathbogie Ranges also provide the perfect challenge for road cyclists, from the weekenders to the pros.
Take a picnic, spend a day in the sunshine, and drop a line in the water to catch some fish. If you come well prepared, you could set up for the weekend in one of our secluded and picturesque camping areas available.
Relax to the natural music of birdlife drifting through the trees and feel the sense of freedom observing a wedge tailed eagle soar above the Ranges.
Our region of lakes, rivers and ranges attracts a diverse and spectacular array of birdlife. From wetland inhabitants such as Kingfishers, Ibis’ and Wrens, to the mountain dwellers including Power Owls and Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoos. A special feature are the birds of prey, in particular the Wedge Tailed Eagles who make their home amid the rocky outcrops of the Strathbogie Ranges.
