Plumwood Mountain sits in the dense and misty rainforests of the South East  Coastal escarpment, 25 kilometres south-east of Braidwood, NSW.

Plumwood Mountain is part of Yuin country, which extends up and down the southern NSW coastline. It adjoins, and shares identified wilderness areas with, Budawang National Park. It is named after the plumwood (Eucryphia moorei) tree, a very old and ecologically significant presence in the rainforest.



Plumwood Mountain was home to the eminent philosopher, feminist and activist, Dr Val Plumwood. Val and her husband Richard Routley moved to Plumwood Mountain in 1974 and together built a home in a forest clearing. Val took on the name Plumwood after separating from Richard and lived here until her death in 2008.

Plumwood Mountain is now held by a trust committed to continuing the environmental, artistic, and educational projects Plumwood started here. We regularly host artists, writers and scholars for forest residencies, and are always looking for ways to engage with people interested in learning from this remarkable place.

Plumwood Mountain








Plumwood Mountain is part of the Musgrave Creek sub-catchment, which is one of the least disturbed catchments in the Budawangs. It’s eastern limbs (and from the coast they do look like limbs) drain into the sub-catchments of the Musgrave and Currawan creeks, and then into the Clyde River. The western flank drains into the Mongarlowe River and then into the Shoalhaven.


The geology of Plumwood Mountain is mixed, with Devonian metamorphosed sediments of sandstone and conglomerate in one corner, and a highly fertile basalt strip that runs through the middle, carrying well-developed pinkwood (Eucryphia moorei) rainforest and tall eucalypt (E. fastigata) forest. Plumwood Mountain’s forest types include cool and warm temperate rainforest, tall and wet escarpment forest, dry sclerophyll forest, and teatree scrub.
