Free Entry - Entry Information

13 7468


Brooyar State Forest features sandstone cliffs, hoop pine plantations and a mix of tall open eucalypt forest with spotted gums. Pockets of riparian rainforest fringe Glastonbury Creek.

Take a scenic drive, stopping to enjoy views from Point Pure lookout (300 metre return walk) or a short stroll along an old logging road through rainforest. You can picnic at Glastonbury Creek, or set up your tent or caravan on the grassy camping area nearby. Relax and absorb the tranquillity. In summer, feast your eyes on the forest's colours: rich red and yellow flowers of black bean trees, and vivid orange flower spikes of silky oaks. You can camp with your dog overnight, but must keep it on a leash.
