Araluen Creek is located at Captains Flat Rd - N , Araluen. Araluen is located 111km of from Canberra via Sutton and 23km from Braidwood. Definitely a nice little out of the way place. You can almost smell the pine trees in the image below. If you are looking for peace and quite then this is probably your destination. There are some properties in the surrounding area so you are not completely isolated. The little village of Araluen is close by. You can swim in the river as the water is clear and clean (and probably quite chilly).
