Reynoldson Reserve is approximately 20kms north of Wongan Hills, situated on the Old Ballidu Road. To get to the Reserve head north on the Northam/Pithara Road and turn right onto the Kondut SE Road (just before Kondut) and then make a right onto the Old Ballidu Road (gravel road), the Reserve is approximately 2km along this road on the left hand side.
There is a trail through the Reserve which you can drive along (caravans not allowed) or you can walk through.

Allow an hour to walk along the trail & stop to view the massive garden of colours, shapes and sizes with scarcely room to tread.
