Malmsbury Common is a highly valued conservation reserve containing significant native grasslands, wetlands and stream bank vegetation.
The site is also home to a diversity of flora and fauna and supports important Aboriginal and European cultural heritage values.
In 2017/18 the Malmsbury community worked with Council to prepare a master plan for the site.
The plan aims to protect and enhance the site’s natural and cultural values, while providing opportunities to increase use and enjoyment of the place by a range of users.
In 2018/19 Stage 1 of the master plan was implemented, increasing the trail network, picnic areas and seating.
Stage 2 has commenced, expanding on the trail network, broadening the reserve experience and providing all weather access for walking (dogs on lead permitted), nature photography, bird watching.
Part of the reserve is closed due to works.
An Environmental Management Plan(PDF, 10MB) is available for this reserve.
