Set among eucalypts and native apple, Moolarben picnic area is a grassy, shaded spot within Munghorn Gap Nature Reserve. Come and enjoy a barbecue with family, friends, your bushwalking club, or fellow birdwatching fans. Look out for birds and animals around Moolarben, such as eastern grey kangaroos, emus, red neck wallabies and, if you’re lucky, an endangered regent honeyeater. Keep those binoculars close.

Over 160 species of birds have been recorded in the reserve and you don’t need to go far to see or hear them. Look out for a colourful flash of lorikeet, parrot or rosella, which are common to this area.

Access to Castle Rocks walk is nearby, so it’s easy to take a hike with a view either before or after your barbecue. This easy 8km walk offers fabulous views of sandstone pagoda features. You’ll definitely want to take your camera along.
