About Me

My Photo
Mont Albert (Melbourne), Victoria, Australia
One of my personal objectives is to convince Australia's millions of TV addicted couch potatoes to make the switch and convert to bush potatoes! In other words, get out there and see the REAL Australia. Go bushwalking - by yourself or with someone! If you never never go, you'll never never know...!

Buckley Nature Conservation Reserve - Balnarring

 
The Buckley Conservation Reserve is a 32 ha (100 acres) area of bushland in Balnarring, 70 km SE of Melbourne. 
  
It's bounded on the west by Balnarring Rd, on the north by Myer's Rd, and by large vineyards and horse studs on the south and east.
  

My visit was on July 27 2014, on a 3 km (return) hike along part of the main firebreak track. 
There are three access points to the Reserve - the main gate (car spaces) are on Balnarrring Rd. Diverse fungi had appeared - in the warmer months, many varieties of birds populate the Reserve. 
 
Unsigned tracks branch off the main track.
