Coimadai: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Long Forest Nature Conservation Reserve


This park provides the opportunity to view Mallee vegetation in close proximity to Melbourne. Plants typical of arid landscapes and small creek escarpments make the reserve a fantastic retreat for bushwalkers and birdwatchers.

Things to see and do
- The reserve is open to visitors for walking, nature study and bird watching
- If you are interested in helping look after the reserve contact the Friends of Werribee Gorge and Long Forest, who organise regular working bees, by calling the Parks Victoria Information Centre on 13 1963
- Walking tracks are the only facilities. Note that fires and camping are not permitted in the reserve.

Heritage
Today, mallee vegetation is widespread in Victoria's dry north-west, but some thousands of years ago, during a warmer and drier period, it extended much farther south. Subsequent climatic changes favoured other vegetation such as box and stringybark eucalypts and the Long Forest is now the only naturally occurring mallee south of the Great Dividing Range.
