at Broken-Boosey State Park
Tuesday 15 March, 2016 |
Broken-Boosey State Park is a linear corridor of bushland bordering the Broken, Nine Mile and Boosey creeks.
Enjoy a scenic drive, bushwalking, have a picnic or a quiet fish. Dip Bridge, where the Boosey and Broken Creeks join, creates a wider and deeper creek system and is a popular spot to cast a line.
Roads into and through the park are mainly unsealed, but suitable for two-wheel drive vehicles. However, due to the clay base, many of the roads become extremely slippery when wet. Drivers are advised to adhere to formed roads even when wet as the edges can become very soft often resulting in vehicles becoming bogged.
