This reserve is very popular, but parking space is usually OK. No fees to park.
Around Platypus Lake. Flat, paved path. Muddy in patches after rain, wear suitable shoes.
Then turn onto Dargon Track and start to climb – easy sloping track, but uphill all the way (which means downhill on the way back 😊), as far as Granite Track.
