Langwarrin Flora and Fauna Reserve Walking Trails

Walk Difficulty Langwarrin Flora and Fauna Reserve is one of the few remaining areas on the South Eastern fringe of Melbourne recognised as an important area for conservation of indigenous flora and fauna. The reserve which covers 214ha has an important place in military history with almost a 100 year history of military use spanning from 1886 to 1979. The park's track network transects a variety of vegetation communities and also provides access to the reserves historical sites.

The Reserve is an ideal setting for quiet recreational activities including walking, jogging, photography, nature study and also cycling and horse riding in defined areas.
The Reserve comprises vegetation of state significance with 300 indigenous flora species, equating to 45 percent of the species indigenous to the Mornington Peninsula at present. The Reserve also provides important habitat for native fauna, particularly small mammals. Half of the mammal species known to exist on the Peninsula were once present within this reserve, including two endangered species, the Southern Brown Bandicoot and the New Holland Mouse. A total of 98 bird species including the rare Southern Emu-wren have been recorded in this reserve.
