The Woodend Grassland Reserve is valued by the community of Woodend as an intact grassland environment that supports regionally significant flora species and a vegetation community considered very rare for this region.
The high flora values of the reserve are attributed to its location within the interior of the old Racecourse, which was spared from heavy grazing, fertiliser application or exposure to invasive weeds.
A wildlife-friendly fence surrounds the entire reserve, which is partly located within the floodplain of the adjoining Five Mile Creek.
The reserve supports one dam, one main drainage line and a series of minor drainage lines that flow into the adjacent Five Mile Creek.
Ecological burning is regularly undertaken to maintain the open grassland structure and to promote native species diversity.
An Environmental Management Plan is available for this reserve.
