Gap Creek Reserve

Directions:
Gap Creek Reserve can be approached either from The Gap to the north or
from Kenmore Hills to the south. From The Gap take Payne Road until the
roundabout after the housing estate and turn left onto Dillon Road; turn
right again onto Gap Creek Road. From Kenmore Hills take Brookfield Road
and turn right onto Gap Creek Road. The reserve is on the TV towers side of
the road and is well signposted, with a turning lane to the car park.

Gap Creek Reserve is good for woodland birds and has been 100% reliable for
Bell Miners. However, the last reported sighting on eBird was in April 2017.
Painted Button Quails and Spotted Quail-Thrush have been seen here. (Watch for
Mountain bikes on the trails).
