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.

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.

Conditions can change in parks for many reasons. For the latest information on changes to local conditions, please visit the relevant park page on the Parks Victoria website.
