Mangrove Mountain & Districts Country Fair
Cnr Wisemans Ferry Road and Waratah RoadMangrove MountainContact: Secretary
The first local Agricultural Shows were held in the 1940s, at our present site, the Mangrove Mountain Hall. This heritage building was opened in 1927, and for many years was the centre of community life. Social activities also took place at Kulnura and Somersby halls.
The idea was revived in 1963 with an annual Country Fair to raise funds to support a local Bush Nurse Centre. When the Health Commission agreed to take over funding the Bush Nurse in 1975, the Fair started on its next phase of raising money for local community projects.
An annual event that is well worth a visit, for locals and as well as visitors to the area. Bring the family and get a breath of ‘Mountain’ air.
There are a number of National Parks in the Mangrove Mountain area, more details here.
Mangrove Creek Dam
An ideal spot for a quiet BBQ with stunning views and a pleasant drive to get there. The dam supplies water for Gosford and Wyong and a pipeline from Mardi Dam is under construction to harvest more water. The construction of the dam in the 1980s was an important project for the area, more details here.
