About Forest Den
Forest Den's waterholes, lined with majestic river red gums and coolibahs provide a refuge in dry times.
This 5890 ha park conserves a wide diversity of plants, some unique to this reserve within the region—the park was established to conserve black gidgee at its western limit. Although used as grazing land for more than 100 years, little remains of this era apart from a few pastoral relics—fences, gateways and a derelict round timber bridge over Torrens Creek.
