A large, extended reserve by the small Hughes Creek, open grassed granite flats with some shade provided by clumps of mature white trunked Victorian Blue Gum, surrounded by steep, grassed hills with granite outcrops. Visible from a very low use country road with limited internal privacy.
Often empty but popular at peak periods. Potentially hot over summer.
White cockatoos, wrens and kookaburras are common.
The creek tumbles over granite boulders with sandy ponds and a large swimming hole.
