About Harvey River Ramble
The trail is an old vehicle service track that follows the Harvey River from the John Tognela Rest Area car park, to the huge double bridge, where the Forrest Hwy crosses the river. You will pass by a farm and with black and white cows grazing in the paddocks. Keep an eye out for fungi growing on old fallen trees in the cooler weather.
Back in the parking area, there are a number of beautiful artworks, depicting local wildlife and historical scenes.
The pine trees, that provide shade, were planted by John Tognela and his family who settled in the area in the 1930s after migrating from Italy. There is a plaque on the eastern side of the parking area, providing more information about the family and their story.
