Bangalee Reserve is a 130 hectare public reserve at Tapitallee on the Northern bank of the Shoalhaven River.
The Reserve was purchased by the State Government and Shoalhaven City Council in 1973. Prior to this the property was broken into two private farms which date back to the 1850’s. The first which covered the western half of the Reserve was owned by the Condie family and was referred to as Bellfields. The 2nd was owned by the Weir family and covered the eastern part of the Reserve bordering Bangalee Creek.
There is a lot of history in the area and visitors can see some remains of structures that had been built there back in the day. There are also 2 cemeteries, quite a few items from the old dairy as well as an old well.
There are several designated walks in and around Bangalee Reserve which range from Easy to Moderate and in distance up to 1.8km. If you are keen to experience Bangalee Reserve, then we recommend having a look at the Bangalee Bushcare website to gather some more information before you head off on your adventure.
It is the perfect place for a picnic and has great facilities including picnic tables, undercover area and a public toilet. There is also a public wharf that had been built allowing people to access the Reserve from the river.
The Wharf allows our passengers to disembark from the Shoalhaven Explorer and explore the area. What a perfect destination option for a Cruise on the Shoalhaven River. You can book our Bangalee Cruise to enjoy this awesome part of the Shoalhaven.
