About this park
Gathercole Nature Reserve has superb displays of wildflowers in spring and boasts amazing natural rock sculptures on the granite outcrop. There are many different vegetation types and rare flora present. Follow a 2.2km loop trail to explore the granite rocks and vegetation, and for scenic views into the distance across the surrounding farmland. Ensure you take plenty of water with you as none is available at this park.
Plan when to visit. Read this safety information about bushwalking. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
