Mongarlowe is a village in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales, Australia in Palerang Shire.

Location and features[edit]

It is situated on the Mongarlowe River and about 13 km east of Braidwood. It currently has a population of around 50 but was much larger during the mid-19th century due to the gold rush and another population boom during the Depression when many returned to distil eucalyptus oil and search again for gold.

There was a proposal for a 98 lot subdivision in proximity to the village which was cancelled in 2008 under pressure from concerned residents.
