Also in the sanctuary is the burial site of 'Old Jack', who suffered at the hands of the notorious Melville gang of bushrangers when they paid Deni an unwelcome visit in 1851.
It’s the perfect spot for a picnic with plenty of grassy spots or picnic tables to choose from. The sanctuary is also pet friendly – just remember to keep your pooch on a leash, so you don’t scare the other wildlife.
Yarkuwa Indigenous Knowledge Centre offer guided cultural tours of the sanctuary, where you can learn about the significance of flora and what it’s traditionally used for, you’ll also have an opportunity to view a scarred tree. Call ahead to book a tour on 03 5881 3312.
