Description: This will be an exploratory visit as I believe that it will be the first time that COG has had a field trip to this site. The Brooks Creek Travelling Stock Reserve (TSR) is rarely visited. It is located between Shingle Hill Way and Brooks Creek, in the rural locality of Gundaroo. A gold rush occurred there in 1861.
