“Seymour Bushland Park Covers 62 ha and was once the Kitchener Military Camp. Later it became a staging ground for the armed forces during the First and Second World Wars. Used as a military base until the 1960’s it is scattered with military relics.Grazing then occurred until 1978. Since then the park has become a natural woodland”.

A community  management committee maintains this reserve  with assistance from the Mitchell Shire. They have done an excellent job. If you’re have  some spare time while in Seymour go for a wander along the walking  tracks and listen to the woodland birds.

Soon creamy white urn heath, red and orange and gold pea plants ( commonly called egg and bacons) paint the bush in colour . Colourful tiny fungi can be found in the damper areas”.
