Mongarlowe, New South Wales


Mongarlowe, New South Wales

Mongarlowe (35°24′S 149°56′E / 35.4°S 149.933°E / -35.4; 149.933) is a village in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales, Australia in Palerang Shire. It is situated on the Mongarlowe River and about 13 km east of Braidwood. It currently has a population of around 20 but was much larger during the mid-19th century due to the gold rush and another population boom during the Depression when many returned to distil eucalyptus oil and search again for gold. There was a proposal for a 98 lot subdivision in proximity to the village which was cancelled in 2008 under pressure from concerned residents.
