Bungalook Conservation Reserve - Kilsyth South

A 3 km exploration of this relatively unknown scenic reserve on February 6, 2017.

It's located on Tereddan Drive in Kilsyth South, Chandra Avenue, Ormond Place and Regency Drive. 

The total size of the reserve is 14.5 ha (35.6 acres) and is made up of three separately managed areas - 

6.2 ha (15.2 acres) around the retarding basin, managed by Melbourne Water, a further 2.2 ha (5.4 acres) west of the Melbourne Water reserve is a Trust for Nature reserve,  and the southern section of 6.1 ha (15 acres) is managed by Maroondah Council. 

The Reserve contains the most intact remnant bushland within the City of Maroondah, featuring several different vegetation types and the only known population of the Kilsyth South Spider Orchid, listed as endangered under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. 

The reserve is also listed as ‘Land for Wildlife’.
