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.

The short bush walk trail is just that - narrow trail through some overgrown vegetation. No view, nothing. There are much better bush walking trails even in the middle of Sydney.

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 with toddlers. No more than 15 mins ambling from the car park in a loop. Pram and wheelchair accessible too. A great patch of paradise. Thank you Robertson Environment Protection Society for preserving it.

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.

It may be small, but cleverly winding paths make you think you are wandering through a much larger forest. Thoughtful and discrete signage provide as much, or as little, information as you need. Altogether refreshing and restful, a 5-minute walk through the reserve is like emerging from some kind of ioniser. A great place to clear the mind and listen to birdsong and peace.

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 of the district used to look like before it was almost entirely cleared for dairying and the town, and before the many weeds of the area became dominant as they now are in so many roadsides and remnant patches. Bring warm clothes and mozzie repellant.

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 are a few benches to stop and rest.
