Test out an afternoon with nature at Brownhill Creek. Quiet, clean adventure with the family – and in summer there’s just enough water to be fun for the littler kids without the faster flowing water you’ll find here in winter.
We have spent a number of wonderful afternoons down at Brownhill Creek this summer armed with nothing more than some bathers and a bucket (or even less!). For older families there is a great walking path alongside the road where you can walk right up the valley (and sometimes spot the horses if you walk far enough!). There are a number of spots to park the car with tables and chairs or cleared areas for a lovely shaded picnic spot. Between Spring to Autumn, there is usually a slow moving stream which is great for kids to play in, look for tadpoles, wrigglers, water beetles, etc. There are lots of fallen trees to climb over and under along the way, but take care as always around water with kids – mine always find a way to fall in!
Where: To get there, turn up Brownhill Creek Road and continue past the caravan park and park the car at one of the designated areas along the road – which is right next to the creek.
