About Plunkett

    Park features

    Popular bush retreats for visitors and locals, Plunkett Conservation Park, Wickham National Park and Wickham Timber Reserve are places to experience nature while recreating in the outdoors. Enjoy a scenic bushwalk or horse ride, or go for a mountain bike ride along one of the shared trails.

    Elevated sandstone ridges vegetated with flourishing heath communities that bloom with whites, yellows and pinks in spring.  Lichen covered boulders and rock ledges provide great habitat for skinks and geckos to bask in the sun and hunt for insects. Plunkett and Wickham also protect a number of significant native species, such as the endangered Leucopogon recurvisepalus, a low growing perennial shrub.
