Des Brennan Park sits alongside Buangor's gorgeous historical Cobb & Co Changing Station and the town's Avenue of Honour which runs down Main Street.

An interesting stone gate is set at the entrance to the reserve, with an arched sign saying "Des Brennan Park".

Playground at Des Brennan Park

The playground at Des Brennan Park is fantastic for younger children, with plenty of low-lying play equipment. Monkey bars and swings make this playground interesting for older children as well. 

The play area is mostly shaded, with only the swing set set out in the sun.  

A fitness station is also provided at Des Brennan Park. 

Walking track from Des Brennan Park

A short, scenic walking track takes you from here over Billy Billy Creek and through the Buangor Primary School Plantation Reserve. 

Cobb & Co Changing Station

Erected in c. 1860 as coach and livery stables, this large bluestone building was used for many years as a Cobb & Co changing station. The stables are of significant scale and construction, situated along the coach route to Ararat and set alongside the old Mac's Hotel (now demolished). 

The large building was constructed with a bluestone slab floor, timber stalls and upper loft, as well as almost identical facades with arched doors and windows.
