Parks Victoria

This park allows visitors to experience the landscape and wildlife seen by European settlers in the 1840s. The park has remnant grassy woodland and native grassland. Kangaroos, birds and other wildlife may be viewed in the fenced 400 ha ‘Back Paddock’, which is a recovery site for Eastern Barred Bandicoots. The 'Back Paddock' was fenced in 1987, as a nature reserve to protect native wildlife from dogs, cats and foxes. The Eastern Barred Bandicoot was re-established there the following year.
