  • Description: The park is on a hill covered with eucalyptus trees and grass native to the area.There is a network of heavily rutted tracks amongst the trees,a toilet block with an undated, unsigned notice without letterhead advising that it has been closed "due to vandalism". No reopening date is mentioned. There are a couple of picnic shelters, and a few tables under the trees.
    The majority of visitors seem to be there to walk their dogs.
    There is a limited amount of cruising after dark, mostly my (men?) in 4WD or Utes.The technique is the old "trial by headlight " approach: put your lights on high beam and look for someone you fancy. Very crude and rude.
    Without cover and a toilet block this place is strictly an after dark venue, the place is as deserted as the highway between about 10 pm and 4 am.
