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, rock climbers, bird watchers and picnickers. There are varied species of wild flowers, birds and animals as well as rock formations, including granite monolith.

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.

Caution - tree and track hazards

The 2015 bushfire impacted 80 per cent of Black Hill Reserve. Many trees continue to decline and some tracks have been badly eroded. Council is continuing to rectify these issues, which at time requires the closure of tracks to undertake works.

During the coming months, there will be an increase in works being conducted to address risks to the public.

Please avoid areas that have been signposted or barricaded. Entering these areas will put you at an increased risk of injury.

Please avoid visiting Black Hill Reserve during windy weather as trees can come down unexpectedly.

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

For more information, visit the Black Hill Reserve website.

An Environmental Management Plan is available for this reserve.

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.
