Phone: 1300 322 842

There is a network of walking tracks which wind through the 214 hectare heathland and eucalypt woodland reserve. Birdwatching, photography and walking are popular activities. The reserve provides a home for half the plant and animal species indigenous to the Mornington Peninsula.

Description

Langwarrin Flora and Fauna Reserve is an island of relatively undisturbed natural bushland surrounded by the suburbs of Frankston and Langwarrin. The park has an important place in military history with almost a 100 year history of military use spanning from 1886 to 1979.

This 214-hectare reserve, managed by Parks Victoria, is natural bushland with a network of pram and wheelchair friendly tracks making it a perfect spot to walk for all skill levels. A former military reserve, it’s an important habitat for native flora and fauna, ideal for quiet recreational activities such as walking, nature study and photography. You may be lucky to spot koalas, brown bandicoots, swamp wallabies and even the rare New Holland mouse.

The park is an ideal spot for setting for quiet recreational activities including walking, jogging, photography, nature study and also cycling. Horse riding is permitted however only on the trail provided beside Robinsons and Warrandyte roads.

The walking tracks traverse a range of vegetation communities providing opportunities to see a wide variety of plants and animals as well as access to historical sites.

Wheel chair friendly access is available along the Centre Break and Reservoir Track providing access to the old hospital site and reservoir.
