Rotary Park, just three kilometres from the City Centre, is a pocket of around 12 hectares of dry rainforest located on the edge of the plateau that supported the huge expanse of Big Scrub subtropical rainforest.
The park is adapted to seasonally dry conditions and features Hoop Pines and giant Moreton Bay Figs. There are around 254 native plant species within the park, with several listed under the NSW Threatened Species Conservation Act.
This dry rainforest patch reinforces the value of conservation and regeneration. Take a short walk through the park to appreciate this important and rare habitat on the fringe of the City Centre that has survived urbanisation.
Please note Rotary Park has a large population of Flying Foxes.
