Certainly a "best kept secret" of the Robertson area.

Barren Grounds Nature Reserve, in October, is a mass of flowering heath, including Banksias, hakea, epacris, melaleuca, isopogon and baeckea. Easy tableland walks lead through spectacular wildflowers to lookouts with sweeping coastal views.

The reserve is open to visitors every day. Entry is free.

The heathland plateau of Barren Grounds is loved by both walkers and birdwatchers - particularly in spring, when it is a mass of wildflowers. A range of walks offer magnificent views of the Illawarra coastline and surrounding countryside.

The reserve is between Robertson and Kiama, on the Jamberoo Pass Road. It's 16km south-east of Robertson and 8km east of the Carrington Falls turn-off.

Walking Tracks
There are a number of walking tracks in the reserve, ranging from an easy 1.5km to a more demanding 20km.

Lookouts
The Illawarra Lookout offers spectacular views of the coastline.
