Get out on the farm at Battle Hill Farm Forest Park. There's 500 hectares of working cattle, sheep and deer farm which you can explore via a range of easy to challenging trails and walkways. Take your tent and stay awhile or pack a picnic and stay the day. This is a great place for mountain bikes, horses or people just wanting to stroll over paddocks and through wetlands, native bush and forest.
In this video Regional Park Ranger Joby Mills shows you around the park and its facilities and introduces you to some very special, slippery residents of this great park.
