Features

  • Walking tracks
  • Bench seating
  • Interesting geology
  • Plants and wildlife
  • Sediment ponds
  • Remnants of Chinese mine sites
A leisurely stroll through the White Hills Sediments Geological Reserve will reveal interesting geology, a variety of plants and wildlife, two sediment ponds and the remnants of many Chinese mines. This 15.5 hectare area has been regenerated and converted into a community space with approximately 2.5 km of walking tracks for visitors to enjoy. Listen out for the chorus of frogs as you approach the dams, and keep to the track because the waters edge is hidden beneath the reeds. 

The regeneration project was a fantastic endeavour undertaken by The Bushfire Foundation Inc, Parks Victoria and Matchworks. You will find more information about the project along with progress photos over at The Bushfire Foundation's website.
