Relevance to Cox’s Road: Cox’s Road is about 650m south of this reserve. The Reserve is dominated by Eucalyptus burgessiana, a rare and threatened species with limited location, very possibly occurring along some sections of Cox’s Road around Faulconbridge around 1815, but not described or recognised as a species by any colonial botanists who came through this way. Enables participants to sample some of the vegetation communities in the Lower Blue Mountains.
