Gibson Close Reserve is categorised as a Bushland/Conservation area.
Bushland/Conservation areas are generally un-embellished and are protected under the Nature Conservation Act 1992. This means they are not accessible for normal recreation purposes, but more for protection of biodiversity and natural habitat.
History behind the name
