Galore Hill Scenic Reserve

Galore Hill rises to a height of 215 metres above the surrounding plains. It is a recreational reserve of natural bushland and a wide variety of native animals such as kangaroos, echidnas and lizards plus over 140 different bird species have been seen here. In the spring the reserve provides a colourful display of wattle, grevillea, hakea and eucalyptus flowers as well as the ground dwelling native orchids, which can all be seen as you drive to the summit. At the summit there are picnic tables, barbecue, toilet, covered information board and a lookout tower offering 360 degree panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Walking tracks take in Morgans Caves which were used by bushranger Daniel 'Mad Dog' Morgan as a refuge from the authorities. Camping is not permitted in the reserve.
