Very good walking trails with lots of scenery. A lot of wildlife to keep you entertained and the running water over rocks so soothing.

Fabulous place for a cycle ride, a walk, a picnic (sadly a cafe/art gallery on site no longer is open).... and to see kangaroos at dusk. They're everywhere, super to show off to your international guests :)

Beautiful well maintained reserve with BBQ facilities, undercover seating & play equipment. Bring a picnic rug as the tables/seats can fill up quickly especially during school holidays or the weekends and remember to bring a garbage bag as all rubbish needs to be taken home....More

This is my favorite spot in the local area. It is perfect for a run anytime -as long as you are accompanied as it can be quite isolated in places. Beautiful view and relaxing places to stop for some kangaroo spotting!

Awesome place to witness wombats in the night and kangaroos day/night. No need to join the Chinese tourist at Healesville sanctuary, you can witness them here. And if you're lucky, platypus too.
