Conglomerate Gully Flora Reserve Bushwalk | Riddells Creek

Discover fascinating rock formations

Get out in nature on a beautiful bushwalk at Conglomerate Gully Flora Reserve, known for its conglomerate rock formations and a small seasonal waterfall.

At a leisurely pace, this 2.9km walk can be completed within an hour and takes you through healthy dry forest and grassy dry forest vegetation types. Wildlife abounds and the parklands are home to kangaroos, echidnas and currawongs. Between October and December you’ll also discover native orchids in flower.

Along the route you’ll find a ‘half-way hut’, a lovely little spot to take in the atmosphere of the surrounding forest.

Conglomerate Gully is a hidden gem waiting to be explored.

Devonshire tea | Dromkeen Homestead

Treat yourself to a delicious afternoon tea

After your hike, head to historic Dromkeen Homestead & Gallery, circa 1889.

Dromkeen was once the country estate of Judge Arthur Chomley and later became home to the world-famous Dromkeen Picture Book Art Collection.

This stately National Trust home has beautiful gardens with a range of Australian native and European plants, a gazebo and two resident peacocks.

Guests to Dromkeen are able to visit their Tea Room, browse in the galleries or wander around the beautiful gardens which have trees more than 100 years old, some listed on the National Trust register.
