This reserve in Kirrawee/Kareela is a suburban gem and has recently had some lovely improvements done to make it very pleasant to visit.

Set in the middle of suburbia is this gorgeous native garden with pathways that you can walk around, barbques and plenty of seats to take in the view. There's also lots of information about the native plants. The reserve covers 2.2 hectares - absolutely stunning.

Pleasant and interesting range of biodiversity systems on a hillside. Picnic tables and BBQ facilities. Suitable for infirm and wheel chair accessible. I loved the staghorns and a native orchid in bloom. Closes at 5. Free.

This is a native gardens park with walkways, wood barbecues (wood provided) and toilets. Easy to park and very few visitors. It is a hidden gem.
