Bong Bong Cycleway

There is a scenic off-road cycleway which runs by the side of the Wingecarribee River a short distance from Moss Vale. Bong Bong was the site of the first settlement in the area, but there is little remaining of the town. Intepretive signage and photographs along the track show what the settlement was like, but the track is also just a nice off-road cycle along ther river. If you are driving up the Hume Highway with the bikes on the back of the car, it is worth a bit of a stop and a cycle.

The cycleway starts just outside of Moss Vale on Suttor Road, and continues alongside the road and over the Wingecarribee River alongside the Highland way. It then leaves the road, and turns and follows the river. There are signs explaining the history of the area regularly located along the track.

The path follows the river until the railway bridge, and then follows the road adjacent to the railway as far as Burradoo station.

The cycleway is all off road, and safe for kids. It isn't very hilly.

You can take bikes on Cityrail trains to Burradoo.
