The local council and residents have done a wonderful job fixing up this once severely vandalised reserve.  New picnic tables, fencing, bbq's and mass tree planting have been undertaken of recent times. Hopefully people will start to respect this historic area and leave it as they find it so it can once again be an area that people can enjoy for a variety of recreational and nature activities.

  3. Hi... I'm a wildlife and landscape photographer who just moved to Kleinton. My passion is birds. Thank you so much for sharing these amazing shots.

    1. Thanks Tracie Louise for your comment. Welcome to Kleinton! It is a lovely area and there are plenty of birds to see and landscapes locally to photograph. I have had a quick look at your blog and I see you have already come across one popular spot for photographers in the area. All the best and I look forward to seeing your future work.
