Of course, a fantastic resource such as this has been enjoyed for more than just picnics for many years now, and you are all encouraged to come and visit Harcourt and see this wonderful place for yourselves. Autumn is an excellent time to make the trek, here are some pictures I took today:

The Oak Forest
Not far from Mount Franklin is her sister, Mount Alexander. At the base of Mount Alexander, near the township of Harcourt is an oak plantation. It was created in 1900 for the purposes of tannin production and to increase local employment, and today there is a wide variety of well established oaks forming a forest the likes of which is rare outside of Europe.
