Sweetwater Creek Nature Reserve and Walking Trails (Frankston South)




Anyone looking for a tranquil hour or just a few minutes to enjoy a beautiful, natural reserve, will find it here.

There is a profusion of indigenous trees, shrubs and grasses, thrilling bird life and the serenity of a tumbling stream. The Reserve corridor remains a unique ribbon of forest, heath, swamp and grassland interlocked by walking trails and resting places. The main track takes walkers beside rock pools, across bridges through an enclosure of native shrubbery and eventually onto a boardwalk, through a corridor of melaleuca and swampland. Side tracks provide opportunities to explore and observe.

There are many entry points to the Reserve apart from the one on Nepean Highway, at the foot of Olivers Hill. They include the Liddesdale, Hoadley, Parkside, Baden Powell, Grange, Bembridge and Fleetwood entrances.

The walks in the reserve include boardwalks, staircases of varying heights and dirt/gravel walking tracks.

Review:


A lap around the Sweetwater Creek Nature Reserve with a side excursion to the bay is an interesting walk. There are a number of information boards along the way and the reserve has a lot of sections of boardwalks. There are houses along the sides of the reserve but they are well camouflaged by trees and bushes. There is a small playground at one section of the reserve with swings, rocker and climbing structure plus a lookout in the shape of a bow of a ship. One side is high (with a lookout point) and the other side is lower. There are plenty of benches for rests throughout the reserve. Near the boat launching ramp are toilets.
