Unique sandstone formations at the top of this walk with views to surrounding country. The walk to the castle rocks is along a fire trail so not interesting for views but the abundant bird life of the reserve makes up for lack of views along...More

Munghorn reserve was sold to us as a bird lovers paradise, but it looks like they flew north for the winter. The 4km walk to the rock was a little dull, but the view once there was fabulous!
