Bombala, located 485 kilometers south west of Sydney, is a pretty southern Monaro district town on the shores of the Bombala River. It got its name from an Aboriginal word that means “meeting of the waters.”
The town of Bombala is also promoted as Platypus Country, possibly because it has the largest population of platypus in New South Wales. As a matter of fact, it has become a must see event to Spot a platypus as they are found in significant numbers in the local waterways.
Bombala is a picturesque town, with its rolling pastures and dense native forests. Its main livelihood is agriculture, and the raising of sheep and beef cattle. There is also a small amount of specialty producers with lavender and many herbs being grown in the district.
Tourism is also growing in importance to the local economy. Twenty kilometers outside Bombala is the South East Forest National Park with beautiful old-growth forests, swamps and fern-filled gullies. You can wander the self-guided heritage walk that includes the historic Olympic Cinema, or ride a mountain bike through the designated State Forest areas.
Other must not miss events happening in Bombala include the annual Celebration of the Motorcycle by the Bombala Motorcycle Association, which is being held during September. The month of October is a time to celebrate nature with Bombala’s Spring Fair, hosted by the Bombala and District Garden Club.
The Bombala Historical Engines and Machinery Society’s Annual Engine Rally also attracts interest from around the country.
