Car park plan for Drawing Room Rocks Trail


Visitor numbers to Drawing Room Rocks Trail near Berry have increased during Covid restrictions and there have been calls for a formal parking area to stop visitors from parking on the steep and narrow road near the entrance of the trail.

The bushwalk is located in the Barren Grounds Nature Reserve on the edge of the Illawarra Escarpment and has attracted around 10,000 walkers in the last 12 months.

Shoalhaven City Council is considering approaching the National Parks and Wildlife Service and State Government for up to $250,000 to help fund the carpark project, which is shovel ready, with the aim of commencing work in the 2021/22 financial year.
