The Glen Nature Reserve

Closed due to current alerts 


The Glen Nature Reserve was created in January 1999. It covers an area of 2750ha. View the detailed park and fire management documents.

Highlights: The heavily forested catchment of Wards River boasts magnificent eucalypt stands and lush subtropical rainforest gullies. The reserve provides habitat for the squirrel glider, yellow-bellied glider, masked owl, Stephens banded snake and other threatened fauna.

Activities: The 220 km Tops-to-Myall Heritage Walking Trail passes through the reserve. Numerous management trails provide varied bushwalking experiences, generally classified medium to hard grade. Car-based (but not caravan) camping is available at Wards Glen, in the west of the reserve, accessible by 2WD when dry.

Access: 25 km south-east of Gloucester on Glen Road (unpaved) off Bucketts Way just south of Craven.
