French Park: Where To Go / Sightseeing

The Rock Nature Reserve


Soaring 364 metres above the surrounding district, The Rock Nature Reserve is one of the most iconic landmarks in the Riverina. A magnificent place to explore, with picnic tables, barbecues and shelter, water, toilets and a walking / cycle path from the nearby town.

Take the family and find a relaxing picnic spot, or if you're feeling energetic take a hike to the top for spectacular views. For the more adventurous, have a go at rock climbing or abseiling with friends.

The Rock Hill Nature Reserve is home to native fauna and flora so make sure to bring your camera and a pair of binoculars when you visit.

Pastoral Shadows of Brookong


The Pastoral Shadows of Brookong is an easy grade, circular walk that takes you on a pictorial trail of Lockhart's history, creating a story through the use of rusted iron, scraps of metal, and other natural materials.

Built over a number of years by the community with the assistance of talented farm art sculpturer, Stuart Spragg, the impressive and ever growing collection of rusty iron sculptures capture the very essence of Lockhart's past, giving visitors a glimpse of rural life in the 1800s, when Lockhart and the area to the west of the town was a huge sheep station. As you stroll through the sculptures, discover settlers, stockmen, drovers, and the ever popular 'Swaggy' amidst the sheep, kangaroos, farm dogs, and brolgas.

Well worth the stroll and a camera is a must. Parking is available adjacent to the Lockhart Motel.
