"Scott Creek Conservation Park" National / Conservation Parks Tip by Diceman_

  Scott Creek Conservation Park
by Diceman_

This is pretty small for a conservation park but it also has a lot of stuff in it's relatively small area.
It's another one of those nice, out of the way wilderness areas where you can pretend civilisation is a million miles off and has lots of good walking trails. No need to worry about getting lost here as you'll never get too far away from where you parked. Near the car park there are old mining trenches here and there and a mineshaft going in the side of the hill (bring a torch or you'll probably decide give it a miss upon reading the "do not go in without a torch" signs at the entrance.) It takes you back in time and makes you think about these people who went out to the middle of nowhere (as it was at the time) to manually bore their way through solid rock all day long.

It's not too far from the city, the simplest way to get there is to take Main Road through and past Blackwood, turn left onto Cherry Gardens Road, then turn right onto Dorset Vale Road which leads to the car park area.
