The Pioneers Walk commemorates some of the early pioneers of Bemboka. 

Plaques have been positioned along a trail in Bemboka Park incorporating a time span from 1827 to 1955. The plaques have digital images of the pioneers etched into the granite surface and they have a short history of their life in Bemboka.

Bemboka was established to serve the needs of the local dairy farmers and the travellers on the Brown Mountain Route. Brown Mountain (1241 m) lies about 25 km west of Bemboka along the Snowy Mountains Highway. It was first crossed in 1816 when a bridle path was established. In 1822 a mail service from Cooma to the coast began traversing the route which became known as the 'Postman's Track'.
