Dolamore Park

One of Gore’s most exquisite and expansive natural attractions – Dolamore Park encompasses 95 hectares of native podocarp forest, complete with sprawling green areas and a range of exotic plantings encased by heritage-style stone wall terracing.

It is one of Gore’s most idyllic spots to walk, camp and explore.

Located just 11 kilometres from Gore in the famed Hokonui Hills, Dolamore Park is at the south-west end of the Croydon Bush Scenic Reserve. There's something on offer for all members of the community and visitors alike.

Dolamore Park was established in 1940 following the Gore Borough Council’s purchase of land to create a public picnic area. This area also provided access into the adjacent Croydon Bush Scenic Reserve in order to maintain it as a wildlife sanctuary.

In 1947, the Dolamore family made a substantial donation to the borough council of £38,000 to ensure the development of the picnic area and facilities was possible, and with that the park was named in their honour.

Over the years, the park has continued to be the perfect spot for a family day out with lush green surroundings, a creek to explore and BBQs. It is also a popular camping spot.
