Around this area, you will see a sign up, unfenced road. It is just that, so don't be surprised to see Cattle asleep or on the road. The roads are narrow, and some are unsealed, so just drive carefully to the conditions of the road.
It was nearly Spring on our last visit to Killarney, and the Wildflowers were just starting to come out in bloom. One of the early ones, is the "Wild Lilac" a lovely bright Purple flower on a trailing plant, very pretty. You will see it anywhere in the Bush and on the roadsides, its a very hardy plant.
The one in the photo was at the local park, and had been trimmed instead of letting in trail, it was one of the best that I have seen.
