Tucked away in quiet farmland, The Rock Nature Reserve - Kengal Aboriginal Place is a small but diverse haven surrounding a remarkable geological giant: The Rock, soaring 364m above the plains.

There are things to do for every type of traveller at the reserve. Take the family and find a relaxing picnic spot, or if you’re an avid adventurist, have a go at rock climbing with friends. Hikers looking for something short, vigorous, and with a big scenic view at the finish line will also appreciate the reserve.

The unique biophysical position of the reserve means it’s filled with varied habitats teeming with everything from turquoise parrots to swamp wallabies. Bring your camera and a pair of binoculars – there’s much to keep them in constant rotation here.

Whether you’re looking for something slow or something adrenaline-filled, the accessibility of The Rock Nature Reserve - Kengal Aboriginal Place makes it an appealing option just down the road from Wagga Wagga. On a clear day, you can even see as far as Mount Kosciuszko and the Victorian Alps.
