Nangara Nature reserve
About 3 km along Jacksons track on the melbourne side of Jindivick this revegetated quarry and riding trails are just wonderful for a gentle bush walk . Graham Duell's sculptures are fantastic and Lyn Childes wombat seats are just lovely. I did the gate to the reserve and it has mosaics, some information boards and easy walks. Have a look!
Rokeby nature reserve
This is just toward the end of old Telegraph Rd west( near where it runs into the road from Warragul to Rokeby/ Neerim sth). This is an old railway line which has been upgraded by the addition of fine gravel.The vegetation changes nearly every 100 yds and it is another pleasant and gentle walk for man and dog!
