Information

Swans Crossing in the Kerewong State Forest is a popular picnic and camping area reached by travelling along a 10-20 klm section of unsealed road. There are a number of walking trails into regenerating native forest and hardwood plantations. Also popular is the Longworths Tramway Heritage Walk located a short drive away. The trail follows the original logging tramline (1913) used to haul timber to the Camden Haven River where it was punted to a mill in Laurieton. Begin your walks from the Swans Crossing Picnic Area. To get there take Upsalls Creek Road via Comboyne Road 15 minutes out of Kendall.

The Swan family ran a dairy and beef property on the site for many years, including clearing the forest and establishing grasses for the stock. This continued until 1964 when the area became State forest. The area is now surrounded by regenerated native forest and hardwood plantations. Swimming is also popular in the nearby shallows of Upsalls Creek. Longworths Tramline Heritage Walk is located a short drive away, with other walking trails leading off from the site.
