Information

This large rock was named after a pioneer cattle owner, George Neagle, who in the late 1840's lived at the foot of the hill on which he rock is situated.

From the earliest days, the rock was favourite picnic ground and a rendezvous for lovers and was known as "Lovers Retreat".

In 1935 the hill was in danger of being stripped of its timber, and Mr Henry Lewcock suggested the property be purchased by public subscription and made a flora and fauna sanctuary.

The land was purchased and the deeds presented to the Corporation in 1936, with the principal donor, Mrs John Christison who also gave Clare Pioneer Park and Christison Park to the people of Clare.
