A small bush area across the railway line from Robertson town. Suitable for a short walk and to grab some fresh highland air. Did not see any wildlife but pleasant enough with well marked trails.

This little patch of rainforest is perfect for a short bushwalk with toddlers. We managed to spot a bower bird nest, see plenty of birds, and fungi. This would be an absolutely perfect day trip in the Southern Highlands if you're away for a weekend...More

Went here for a short walk after a long day in the car. It is only small but very interesting as far as flora and fauna is concerned. Bower birds and black cockatoos were the highlights.

Visiting this Yarrawa Brush rainforest reserve is like stepping into another world. My kids loved exploring the pathways. The vines and ferns are magnificent! Well worth a visit.

This is a tiny remnant of the once much larger Yarrawa Brush (Robertson Rainforest), now an endangered ecological community. You can easily park and walk (level ground) through this patch, which is maintained by the NPWS and local volunteers. Get an impression of what some...More

Just a few hundred metres from the pub is an amazing patch of the original Yarrawa Brush, the cold climate rainforest. A level 600m loop track takes you through soaring trees and snaking vines. A beautiful peaceful walk, easy for kids of any age. There...More
