About Coomoora Woodland Flora and Fauna Reserve
Coomoora Woodland is an important public amenity and is used for a range of passive recreational pursuits including bushwalking and by local school groups and the community studying biodiversity.
Home to the threatened swift parrot, hyacinth and prawn greenhood orchid, the Coomoora Flora and Fauna Woodland Reserve is an important ecologically in the City of Greater Dandenong. The threatened grey-headed flying fox and endangered growling grass frog have also been spotted at this site.
Coomoora Woodland Reserve has been actively managed by the City of Greater Dandenong for conservation of its remnant woodland communities for at least 20 years. This management has included enrichment planting in largely intact areas as well as revegetation of degraded areas; allowing fallen timber to remain on site as habitat; on-going weed control and ecological burning.
It is a great location to bird watch, bushwalk and enjoy the seasonal wildflowers.
