Freres Crossing

Discover some local history along with the natural beauty of this reserve.

Walk or ride your bike to the end of a light trail to find the old Freres Crossing. This road originally formed part of the 1917 highway connecting Campbelltown and Newcastle.

But don’t be hasty to get to end - slow down and take in the stunning native flora and fauna.  Endangered woodland, scribbly gums, grey gums, Gymea lilies and grass trees blanket the park. If you listen closely you might hear a laughing kookaburra or Brown Thornbill. Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for eastern water dragons, echidnas and koalas.
