Community Group Description

Gundaroo Park was officially proclaimed on 7 December 1886 with William Affleck, Joseph Styles and Thomas Booth as its first trustees. Since then it’s been a NSW Crown Reserve run by volunteers who make up the Gundaroo Park Land Manager Board.

Most of the public assets in Gundaroo are managed and run in the same way, rather than by the local council.

A User Group Sub-committee helps with day-to-day operations. Funds to run the Park come from fundraising, donations from local people and campers and grants.

The old trees are what remain of 140 conifers from around the world planted by Affleck in the 1890s as a “pineretum”. Sections of the old pavilion date back to the early 1900s.

The community uses the Park for sporting and school activities, Scouts, Men’s Shed, family events, exercise and dog walking. Events include the annual Gundaroo Music Festival, historic car and motorbike displays and other special days.

We’re approved as a Primitive Camping Ground for short term stays (contact us for details) and we’re on the National Bicentennial Trail and the National Public Toilet Map.
