Review:


The reserve consists of the main area and a separate area with a sensory trail. Near the entry point is a shelter with some information panels, toilets, water tap, BBQ, shaded tables and seats. You can also pick up a brochure with details about the self-guided trail. The trail meanders back and forth through a fairly small area and you get peeks of houses along the way. There are some seats along the way if you want to rest for a bit although doing the whole trail without a rest would not be arduous at all. The sensory trail didn't hold much attraction for the kids.

The reserve is only open at designated days and times and so some organisation is required to visit.
