Alex Wilkie Nature Reserve - Spring and Summer Open Days
Alex Wilkie Nature Reserve is a beautiful area of bushland in South Springvale and is waiting to be discovered for its natural and spectacular beauty. The reserve is open every Friday (9am-3pm) and on the third Sunday (10am-5pm) of the month during the Spring and Summer seasons.
The reserve is ideal for casual walks or just enjoying a family BBQ or picnic while soaking up the surrounds. Council has rangers available for tours and we offers bookings for school and community groups who would like to learn more about the indigenous flora and fauna in the reserve.
Live steamers mini-trains are available for rides on Sunday open days. Closed-toe shoes are required for train rides.
Please note: Reserve is closed during the winter season, public holidays, days of total fire ban and severe weather warnings.
Bookings are essential for group bookings. Phone Council's Operations Centre on 8571 1702.
