Belanglo State Forest
Hume Hwy, NSW

Belanglo State Forest 10 km west of Moss Val is predominately a pine plantation with areas of native forest. Just over 1.5 hours from Sydney and Canberra, it is a popular recreation spot. The first radiata pines were planted in this area in Belanglo State Forest in 1919. Today there are around 3,500 hectares of commercial pine plantations in the southern highlands with timber being processed at a local mill.

The local terrain and trail networks make for a perfect base for a day of adventure at the MD ARA Series.
