Windsor Downs Nature Reserve
Windsor Downs Nature Reserve was created in September 1990. It covers an area of 363ha. View the detailed park and fire management documents.
Highlights: This reserve featuring a historic windmill and water tank protects a number of endangered plant communities and includes species such as the broad-leafed ironbark, grey box, scribbly gum, narrow-leafed angophora, pea flowers and a species of geebung. Several bird species have been recorded - the red-capped and hooded robins, white-winged choughs, buff-rumped and yellow-tailed thornbills and the endangered regent honeyeater - which are usually found in the drier habitats of the central west slopes.
Activities: You can experience rich and varied bird-life from the flat and wheelchair-accessible Richmond Road and Surprise trails (assistance may be required on some sections). Wheelchair access to the park is from Mr Corns Trail off Sanctuary Drive.
Access: 3.5 km south of Windsor between the suburbs of Bligh Park and Berkshire Park (36 km North west of Sydney). Access the reserve via Sanctuary Drive and Surprise Crescent.
