Gathercole Reserve Circuit
Starting from Gathercole Reserve car park on Moonijin W Road, Mocardy, this walk takes you on a circuit in Gathercole Nature Reserve. Gathercole Reserve is a granite outcrop that is famous for its diverse variety of vegetation, including native orchids. The path goes through enormous granite rocks formed by ancient erosive forces and surrounding woodland. There is also informative signage about the wildlife and vegetation along the trail. You can opt to visit the area in springtime to be welcomed by the display of wildflowers and spot echidnas if you are lucky. There can be short steep sections, and the track can be uneven in places. Additionally, the path can get slippery during the wet season and can get extremely hot during summer. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
