Significant flora

Leacock Regional Park is part of the Cumberland Plain woodland, an endangered ecological community that houses the critically endangered Cumberland Plain land snail. The park is also one of the few places in NSW where you can see the rare tree species, blue box eucalyptus, as well as some of the oldest native and endemic trees in metropolitan Sydney. The Weaving Garden Environment Group is currently carrying out bush regeneration within the park.

Swap tall buildings and busy roads for this pretty patch of nature. Leacock Regional Park offers the opportunity to escape and clear your mind in a delightful natural setting, right on your doorstep. It’s ideal for cycling and jogging along the edges of Glenfield Creek and the Georges River. If you’re looking for a western Sydney park to walk your dog, then look no further than Leacock Regional Park. Dogs are welcome here, as long as they’re on-leash and the 1.6km Bellbird walking track will give you both a good workout – particularly if you make it a return trip.

  • Bellbird walking track You’ll find the Bellbird walking track in Leacock Regional Park, southwestern Sydney. It’s a lovely stroll to and from Casula station, with birdwatching opportunities, too.
  • Leacock picnic area The picnic area at Leacock Regional Park, just off the Hume Highway near Casula, is a great rest stop on a long drive or for a picnic with your dog in toe.

Plants and animals you may see

Animals

    Common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula)

    One of the most widespread of Australian tree-dwelling marsupials, the common brushtail possum is found across most of NSW in woodlands, rainforests and urban areas. With strong claws, a prehensile tail and opposable digits, these native Australian animals are well-adapted for life amongst the trees.

  • Cumberland Plain land snail (Meridolum corneovirens)

    The endangered Cumberland Plain land snail is only found on the Cumberland Plain, west of Sydney. During drought it digs deep into the soil to escape harsh conditions. Its brown shell is thin and fragile.
