Black Hill Reserve

Black Hill Reserve - walking track

A wonderful 100 hectare granite reserve in a woodland setting. Its walks are refreshing and invigorating, providing excellent views of the countryside.

This reserve provides a great opportunity to observe local fauna and flora. It is popular with bushwalkers, bird watchers and picnickers. There are varied species of wild flowers, birds and animals as well as rock formations, including a granite monolith.

It is located on Taungurung Country. Council is engaging with Taungurung Land and Water Council to develop an understanding of the site's cultural heritage values and importance to the Taungurung people.

The trails are progressively being repaired and upgraded, so please use caution when walking the trails. Note: trails will be closed at times to facilitate track construction works.

If you have any queries, call our Environment team on (03) 5422 0333.

For more information and a map of the tracks, visit the Black Hill Reserve website.

An Environmental Management Plan is available for this reserve.

Track and drainage works

Track damage still persists in Black Hill Reserve, requiring the closure of the northern loop section. Repair of this section of track is programmed for the 2023/24 financial year, with tree hazard mitigation works planned for Spring and works are planned during the Summer.

Council appreciates your patience as it works to repair the damage in these areas.

Pest animal program works

Pest animal control works are undertaken in Black Hill Reserve periodically to protect threatened species and this can include baiting for foxes.

It is the responsibility of dog owners to ensure dogs are on a lead at all times, when visiting the reserve. Please observe and follow the directions of reserve signage.
