The Glen Nature Reserve
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.
