Lizard Log is a natural wonderland where interaction with its bushland setting is encouraged via a terrific nature-themed playground, plus scenic walking and cycling tracks. Purpose-built coal barbecuing stations make it a top pick for family barbies, too.

From early May, visitors will use a temporary entrance, located on Cowpasture Rd, around 220 metres south of the existing entrance on The Horsley Drive. For more information please see our Parklands Project page for more information.
