MOORE PARK NATURE RESERVE

This tiny reserve is not part of the area of the ‘Big Scrub’ but is all that remains of an area once known as Boyd’s Scrub. Several stands of gallery rainforest, including black bean and silky oak, provide habitat for a large colony of grey-headed flying-foxes and endangered black flying-foxes.

It is the most important example of black bean rainforest in NSW and is just off the Summerland Way near the locality of Old Grevillia, 26klms north of Kyogle.

Moore Park picnic area, at the north end of Moore Park Reserve, is the best place to start any visit to the area. Pack a barbecue lunch and settle down around some tables in the cool shade of the rainforest. The picnic area is surrounded by beautiful scenery at the junction of Findon Creek and Richmond River. You might notice the high ridges of McPherson Range and Border Ranges National Park. Richmond Range begins to rise to the west and south.

You may see groups of grey-headed flying foxes hanging from tree limbs near the picnic area Their natural foods are native fruits and the blossoms and nectar of eucalypts.  Massing together, they make a dramatic spectacle, but be careful not to disturb their camp when it’s occupied. When the bats are in residence, please avoid disturbing them as much as possible. Birds which is may be seen include Brown capped Emerald Dove, Rose-Crowned Fruit Dove, Noisy Pitta, Bared cockatoo-shrike, Golden whistler and the Azure Kingfisher.

Trig Point, Fairymount, Walk

A trig point (also known as a Trigonometric Station) typically consists of a black disc on top of four metal legs or concrete pillar, resembling a navigation beacon. It is also accompanied by a metal disc, which is located directly below the center point of the tripod or on top of the pillar itself.

Trig points are generally located at the top of hills or points of prominence in the landscape. Many provide unique views and challenges, with some being difficult to get to.

Located at the top of Fairymount (338m above sea level) other interesting things include an  interesting tower nearby. And there is an old fridge that has been there for 20 odd years. The electrics  from the original antennas must have been  be housed in it to make them weatherproof as these and the UHF antenna have since been relocated from this trig point.

The walk itself is an uneven track, which is no longer 4×4 accessible, and is quite steep in places but well worth the effort to reach the top. There are a few gates to pass through. The walk certainly is a good leg workout. It’s not too far from the carpark located at the Lookout (Captain Cook Memorial Lookout) up Mount St, though. Head up hill through the gate. At any junction, continue to take the uphill track. There are great views out over Kyogle let alone up the Fawcetts Plains valley to the north, plus the Border Ranges National park and Qld border in the distance to the north, whilst walking up. The walk could take about 1hr to get to the top (depending on how fit and energetic you are) and about half that to return, seeing as it is downhill all the way. Make sure you take your camera, water and snacks, and suitable walking  shoes is recommended.
