Scenic Mt. Martha Park, Mornington Peninsula





Mt. Martha Park is a preserved bushland area, of 52 hectares, 90 km south of Melbourne, on the Mornington Peninsula.

It provides a quiet haven for koalas, wallabies, kangaroos, possums, echidnas and many native birds.

The main entrance is off Bradford Rd.

There are two main walking tracks, the Calder and Brimwood tracks, with views to Arthurs Seat, the city and across the bay to Queenscliff.

Calder Tk leads to the Summit (162m) and then to a lookout.

Most of the Park was completely destroyed in the bushfires of 1995 - vegetation is mainly regrowth.

The Park is managed by the Mornington Shire with assistance from community groups.

I explored this interesting Park on October 23, 2007.

Unfortunately, recent vigorous fuel reduction activities in the eastern section have left the former arboretum a blackened ruin.
