WHAT TO DO IN Wandandian
Close by Jerrawangala National Park is located along the Turpentine Range which is part of the Great Eastern Escarpment. Jerrawangala Lookout offers breathtaking views that take in the expanse of Gerringong in the north, to Ulladulla in the south. These types of vantage points were used by Aboriginal people to send messages and a number of Aboriginal campsites have been recorded within the park along with a tool-making site and a scarred tree. The park is dominated by low to medium forests of scribbly gums and red bloodwoods. Early spring brings out stunning wildflowers, with their sweet nectar attracting birds such as eastern spinebills and New Holland honeyeaters. The park is popular with mountain biking enthusiasts who enjoy exploring the trails of the nearby Yerriyong State Forest.
