Brenanah - Kooyoora State Park



With magnificent views and a rich variety of plants and animals, Kooryoora State Park is an ideal place for picnics, sightseeing, rock climbing, orienteering and nature study. Visit the Melville Caves, huge granite boulders thought to have been once used as a hideout for the bushranger ‘Captain Melville’.

The track crosses a creek then heads down through more rock formations before climbing out of the valley and returning to the car park.
