Set in a landscaped setting is a large Memorial Rock, with an insert plaque commemorating those who fought and died in various theatres of war. A second stone remembers those who served in H.M.A.S Ships. A dawn service is held here each year on Anzac Day, followed by breakfast in the Tavern. Throughout the year, Anzac Reserve is perfect for a picnic or bird-watching
Wombats, large grey and black wallaroos and wallabies are among the most easily observed of our local inhabitants, especially grazing at dusk. Wombats are best spotted at night with a torch. Platypus, bushy-tailed and ring-tailed possums, marsupial mice, koalas and species of bats abound in the valley.
The Watagans is the name given to the forested mountain range separating the Hunter River catchment and the Tuggerah Lakes system, which comprises both State Forest and national park.
The area offers many walks, from short strolls to the 200km+ Great North Walk which crosses Watagan Creek Road about 18km from Laguna. The area is also popular with day-trippers, campers, mountain bike riders, four-wheel-drives, photographers and others who enjoy time in the great outdoors.
Access via Martinsville Road from Cooranbong, Watagan Road from Quorrobolong or Watagan Creek Road from Laguna.
Stretching over 70km from Wisemans Ferry to the Hunter Valley, Yengo National Park is a wild area of steep gorges and rocky ridges, forming part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage area. Mt Yengo is of cultural significance to local Aboriginal communities and the historic Old Great North Road, an intact example of early 19th century convict road-building, follows the south-east boundary of the park. Many 4WD tracks cross the park, and 2WD vehicles can access Finchley Trig, which offers a 360º viewing platform and interpretation board, with an aboriginal engraving site nearby.
To access the Park, Ttn off Great North Road near Laguna into Yengo Creek Rd and then into Upper Yengo Creek Rd. Follow National Park signs to Finchley Trig.
