Warren Conservation Park

Warren Conservation Park is characterised by steep country with views over forests, reservoirs, pastures and bushland above the spectacular Warren Gorge. The park is most colourful in spring when wattles, banksias, hakeas, heaths and eucalypts are in flower, but its native fauna and wild forests of stringybarks and long-leafed box are always worth a visit.

The park has four challenging walking trails, including a section of the long distance Heysen Trail. The tracks are steep and difficult and should be used by experienced bushwalkers only.

The relatively untouched nature is a haven for some of Australia's rarest animals and provides ideal opportunities for naturalists, birdwatchers and photographers.

Activities

Bushwalking (hiking), including the Heysen Trail.

Camping

There is no camping available in the park.

Location

Located several kilometres away from Williamstown.
