Evans Crown Nature Reserve protects an island of remnant vegetation as well as spectacular granite formations. Evans Crown provides extensive views over the surrounding landscape and is visible from a great distance. These factors, plus the granite cliffs, have influenced use of the area.
There is strong evidence to suggest that Evans Crown was an important place for the Wiradjuri Aboriginal people as well as the neighbouring Gundungurra and Darug people.
More recently it has become popular for recreational activities such as bushwalking, rock climbing and abseiling. A key objective for management of Evans Crown Nature Reserve is to ensure that recreational activities in the reserve do not compromise the reserve’s natural and cultural heritage values.
