The community of about 30 people has a phone box, a CFA shed and a hall. Most people are interested in growing their own food, using renewable energy and have a fairly progressive and environmental outlook.
The nearest shops are a long drive so please come with all your needs, and even a spare jerry of fuel if you intend to visit the parks.
Many areas have been badly burnt in the Black Summer fires (2019-20). The Errinudra National Park to the east has several walks through 'dinosaur land' cool temperate rainforests and old growth forests with 600 year old giants - small areas that resisted the fire.
There is Mt Morris/Woolly Butt Hill which overlooks the Brodribb Wilderness, Mt Koskiusko, the Cobberas and the Gelantipy Plateau.
The other high spot is Mt Ellery (burnt); a challenging 1km climb takes you up through the giant granite boulders strewn throughout the tall Mountain Ash forests at the summit.
To the west of Goongerah is the Snowy River National Park with its dry rainshadow woodlands, ancient calytris pines, the famous Snowy River (warmest river in the state despite its name), and the nearby Little River Gorge - truly breath-takingly steep and deep....
