Located south east of Balaklava, the Rocks Reserve is a pleasant 11.5-hectare picnic and walking destination on the banks of the Wakefield River.
It takes its name from the attractive rock formations which have been created by the river.
The reserve was first established as camping spot for pioneers travelling north, and has allegedly been involved with some mysterious disappearances, before becoming a popular destination for locals looking for somewhere to swim, fish or relax in the cool shade of a grove of gum trees.
Today the reserve is a 12 hectare property complete with picnic and toilet facilities.
Various paths take walkers alongside the river past the carved rocks and the well-established river redgums.
