- Originally a logging camp established in 1937, Lowden Forest Park is a pleasant spot for picnics or camping and is ideal to explore the eucalypt forest, dominated by messmates and ribbon gums. Facilities include wood barbecues, toilets, drinking water and walking tracks. What makes this place different from other pleasant campsites in the bush is the old water wheel. This large wheel was built in Queanbeyan in 1952 and brought to the logging camp to provide electricity and to recharge the batteries of the timber trucks. Now restored, the wheel turns in the middle of a large grassy clearing.
