The Pines Flora and Fauna Reserve Loop
Starting from the carpark on Ballarto Road, Frankston, this walk loops within the The Pines Flora and Fauna Reserve via the Milkwort, Panorama, Hakea Ridge and Sword Sedge tracks. If you like natural bush, then a walk through here is a must. The area is very large, and you could easily spend hours exploring the network of walking tracks. The reserve is ideal for activities such as nature studies, photography, dog walking and family picnics. It is a very important area for native fauna, particularly small mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Echindas, wallabies, possums, bandicoots, foxes and rabbits can all be found in the reserve along with Eastern Brown, Tiger and Copperhead snakes. The tracks are made of gravel and sand, and there are signposts at the intersections. Dogs are allowed on-lead in the reserve. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
