Covering 600 hectares, Dismal Swamp is believed to be the only blackwood sinkhole in the world, formed over thousands of years by dissolving dolomite. It is registered as a National Estate Area based on its importance for understanding the ecology of blackwood forest communities. The forest is thick with blackwood, myrtle and tea tree. Swamp flora also includes sassafras, native laurel, fungi and man ferns. The swamp is home to creatures such as the burrowing crayfish, spotted-tailed quolls, pademelons, ring-tail possums, snakes, blue wrens, robins, green parrots and grey goshawks.

Puzzling name

Dismal Swamp is the area’s historical name, believed to date back to colonial times. While there are a number of stories about its origin, the most credible is that it was named in 1828 by Government Surveyor John Wedge who was exploring the area at the time under the instruction of Governor Arthur. It is recorded that the group had a ‘dismal’ experience surveying the swamp. They were constantly wet and had to sleep on fallen logs and in trees to try to keep dry at night. The neighbouring swamp apparently offered some respite from the damp and hence earned the name Welcome Swamp.
