JACK DWYER RESERVE
This scenic reserve was named in honour of the late Jack Dwyer who cared for Wauchope's parks and gardens as an employee of the former Hastings Shire Council. Jack was one of the founding members of the Wauchope Lasiandra Festival. He envisoned a floral festival to promote the Wauchope area and set about planting Lasiandra (Tibouchina) about the town.
The first Lasiandra festival was held in 1984 and it has continued annually since then, always taking place from the second Saturday in March to coincide with the floral spectacular of Wauchope's floral emblem - the Lasiandra (Tibouchina) in full bloom.
