Wadinong Sanctuary Blackburn

A 2 km circuit hike on Mach 10, 2017. 

The main entrance is on Ronley St - the site also fronts on to Canterbury Rd.

Wandinong Reserve is a nature reserve in the middle of suburban Blackburn which was bequeathed to the people of the former Nunawading Shire by the Hoare Family in 1973. Each year, the descendants of the donors gather to celebrate the generosity of their forebears.

The original owners of the property planted trees with signage marking the names and birthdays of their 20 grandchildren.

The homestead, built in 1913, and outbuldings were demolished in the mid-1970s. The homestead stood near the large pine trees, at the end of the main pathway; commmorative plaques on a large granite boulder and an information board mark the actual site.
