About Glen Rock

    Forest features

    Glen Rock State Forest preserves a diverse range of landforms, vegetation communities and wildlife. It stretches from the fertile flats of the Blackfellow, Shady, Flaggy and Black Duck creeks to the rugged gorges, ridges and high plateau country of the Great Dividing and Mistake ranges and borders Main Range National Park to the south.

    The vegetation communities range from open woodlands and rocky escarpments to dry vine scrub and rainforest.

    Vulnerable wildlife species such as the brush-tailed rock-wallaby (pictured), powerful owl and glossy black-cockatoo inhabit the area.
