New ‘Butterfly Walk’ at iconic reserve

Feeling a bit frazzled from too much Christmas hustle and bustle, why not head to the stunning, tranquil Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve to relax and reconnect with nature?

The beloved reserve is now easier to access following a recently completed upgrade to the main walking trail. This new Butterfly Walk trail snakes through the top of the reserve, from the boardwalk to the toilet block, to provide better access and allow more people to enjoy its natural beauty.
