Woodlands Historic Park


Woodlands Historic Park provides a fascinating glimpse of the landscapes and wildlife seen by European settlers in the 1840s. The park has a 150-year old homestead, Indigenous canoe trees, native woodland and grassland.

Wander through the fenced 'Back Paddock' and see kangaroos, birds and other wildlife. The sight of large groups of wild kangaroos in their Australian bush habitat, is a magnificent, never-to-be forgotten experience.

Many walking trails are available through Woodlands Historic Park. You can combine a pleasant walk in the Australian bush with the opportunity to see scores of eastern grey kangaroos bounding across the sweeping grasslands of Woodlands Historic Park, together with plenty of other Australian native wildlife.
