The history of the park goes back to the early 1900’s when it was purchased by the South Western District Scout Association and developed for local groups as a get away for troop camps. Numerous volunteers contributed tirelessly to the immense task of developing winding tracks throughout the park and clearing an area to build recreational facilities.

On 16th February 1983 tragedy struck in the form of the infamous Ash Wednesday bushfires, totally destroying all buildings since erected, leaving the bushland blackened and scarred from its ferociousness.

The tough Aussie bush has since rejuvenated, bursting with colour and abundant wildlife, including numerous specious of birdlife. Kangaroos and Wallabies who now call the park home can often be spotted drinking from the small creek which gently flows through the centre of the bush.
