Bombala Attractions

Bombala Historic Engine & Machinery Shed

Bombala Historic Engine and Machinery Society have built a rustic farm shed to house their vast array of restored engines and farming implements and also a club house made from recycled farm timbers. The Society holds a huge engine rally every two years (on the even numbered years) which attracts interest from all around the country. This is a must for those with an interest in the history of the area and engines in particular. While there is no admission fee to this attraction, donations are gratefully received as it goes towards the upkeep of the shed and the engines.

Located in Railway Park, fronting onto Mahratta Street, (Monaro Highway) in Bombala.

Bombala Platypus Reserve

The Platypus Reserve is an ideal place to spot platypus. The best times to see them is either early morning or late afternoon. A viewing platform out over the river ensures you get a great view of these charming animals. This platform is suitable for all age groups so nobody misses out. There is an on-site information board that provides you with comprehensive details about the platypus. Platypus can stay underwater for up to 14 minutes, but it is more likely that they will only remain under for 60 to 90 seconds, so be patient and quiet when you are viewing this national treasure.

Located 4 kilometres from Bombala along Delegate Road which runs west off the Monaro Highway, south of the town.
