Union Jack Forest Reserve - Buninyong

The Union Jack Forest Reserve is adjacent to the historical township of Buninyong, south of the provincial city of Ballarat, Western Victoria, 120 km west of Melbourne.

The area was named by English, Scottish and Irish miners who discovered gold here in 1857.

Covering 72 hectares, walking tracks pass through regrowth forest and adjacent to old mine shafts and sluice channels, with many interpretative signs describing the fauna, flora, and features of the gold rush era.

The pictures were taken on February 24, 2007, on our hike through the reserve.
