Proceed on the gravel road for about 200m to the Bush's Lane street sign. The Bush's Lane (picture shown below) is to the right opposite a hay shed. Proceed on this lane. The entrances to "Dalton Park" and the Oolong Sanctuary are about 1km from the Bush's Lane sign. Please park your car on the parking area near the entrance.
