Guided Walk: Brush Farm Park & House

The walk will be conducted through the remnant rainforest featuring many ferns and cabbage tree palms which provide plenty of shade for walkers, ensuring comfortable conditions even on a hot day. Brush Farm Park is all that remains of Gregory Blaxland’s farm and his house can be seen across the road. Because of the rich history associated with the site, our guide will provide further insights about Gregory Blaxland and his farm throughout the duration of the walk. We will also see a turpentine tree on the walk which is over 500 years old.
