Glenfern Valley Bushlands (Upwey)



Glenfern Valley Bushlands comprises 40 hectares and is located 35 km east of Melbourne. It is bounded on the south by Glenfern Road, on the west by New Road, the north boundary is Ferny Creek and the eastern boundary is 'Depot Track'. The land falls gently from south to north, with Grassy Forest and Herb Rich Foothill Forest on high ground to Riparian Forest at the creek line. It is in the Southern Fall Bioregion, and contains a large area of remnant vegetation.

This land is now used for passive recreation such as walking and bird watching. You can walk the Reserve in a large loop, a figure eight or any way you wish, as there are several interlinking tracks. Which ever way you choose, you will find a variety of easy walks, different views, changing vegetation and a variety of wildlife.

If you would like to picnic, there are two picnic tables along the Glenfern ridge track but you may choose one of the many quiet areas. Please take your rubbish with you.

There are eleven seats, strategically placed to take in the various views and to rest in quiet surroundings.

You may walk your dogs there but please remember that the Reserve is used for roosting and we do not want to scare off the wildlife.
