TWO parks in one! Si­t­u­ated on the Great Di­vid­ing Range and at an alti­tude of 720m, Rover Park isn’t the big­gest, but it fea­tures a 4WD and mo­tor­bike park in one, with the two sep­a­rated by a bound­ary.

The fam­ily-friendly park has an abun­dance of ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions for those who love to camp or ap­pre­ci­ate a lit­tle bit more lux­ury. There’s an en­ter­tain­ment shed with a bar­be­cue, a TV, ta­bles and chairs, and a games room with ar­cade games for the kids (or like-minded adults) if the weather turns nasty.

For those who want to en­joy four-wheel driv­ing, the tracks are well-sign­posted and each is graded ac­cord­ingly. How­ever, in the event of rain, the grad­ing can change dra­mat­i­cally, so com­mon sense pre­vails here. A small play­ground near the kiosk will test your flex and tuck.

The bush camp­sites are cleared and main­tained, with long drop toi­lets avail­able. Fires are al­lowed and you can col­lect fire­wood any­where on the prop­erty. A sep­a­rate camp­ing area and a mo­tor­bike track is po­si­tioned away from the 4Wders, for safety rea­sons. Other ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer in­clude fish­ing, bush­walk­ing, swim­ming and a 76m wa­ter­slide!

There is a heap to do here, but re­mem­ber it is a smaller park com­pared to the oth­ers, and some of the tracks don’t take long to com­plete. How­ever, it is a fam­ily-friendly 4WD park that ticks all the boxes for ev­ery­thing you’d want, and it’s def­i­nitely worth a week­end if you’ve never been.
