Gosling Creek Reserve was named after Jonathon W. Gosling, a free settler who arrived in Australia by ship in 1827 and the first property owner in the district. The Reservoir provided the first town water supply to Orange after being officially tuned on in 1890 by the Governor Charles R B Carrington. Gosling Creek Reservoir is the first reservoir of three that have been constructed in the Summer Hill catchment area. Gosling Creek Reserve has been reclaimed from a pine plantation and is undergoing regeneration from the remnant vegetation. Although many weed species are still present there is also a good diversity of native flora (approximately 45 different species) which makes a fantastic display of flowers in spring.
