This park is tra­di­tion­al­ly the land of the Kau­r­na Peo­ples. Dur­ing the 1840s much of the sur­round­ing area was cleared by Euro­pean set­tlers for farm­ing and mar­ket gar­dens. Today, due to the con­ser­va­tion efforts of the local com­mu­ni­ty and the region’s cool win­ter con­di­tions, Mount George Con­ser­va­tion Park fea­tures a great vari­ety of veg­e­ta­tion and spring flowers.

There are many walk­ing trails to explore in the park, rang­ing in dura­tion from 15 min­utes to 2 hours. A sec­tion of the Hey­sen Trail also pass­es through the park. The park is divid­ed into two zones. You can walk your dog in the recre­ation zone, between Mount George Road and Cox Creek, pro­vid­ing you keep it on a lead and under your con­trol at all times.

As you enter the recre­ation area, mar­vel at the majes­tic Moun­tain Gums. Look out for pea flow­ers, ground-hug­ging cor­reas and a vari­ety of delight­ful native orchids. Many native birds can be seen around the trees and shrubs, includ­ing superb blue wrens, red-browed finch­es, white-throat­ed tree creep­ers and scar­let robins. Many mam­mals and rep­tiles also exist in the park.
