Holden Flora & Fauna Reserve (Sunbury)



Located 40kms north west of Melbourne in Victoria’s western plains, the Holden Flora Reserve adjoins Jacksons Creek, just north of Organ Pipes National Park. The Reserve was created in 1989 to preserve the geology, flora and fauna of the Keilor plains and encompasses 96 hectares that is largely managed by Parks Victoria.

Relatively unknown amongst the local community, the Reserve features spectacular geological formations similar to those found at Organ Pipes. The Reserve is also home to important cultural heritage sites valued by the Wurundjeri. Jacksons Creek formed the boundary between two clan estates and Sunbury was an important meeting place. The Reserve contains surface scatters of artefacts and other signs of habitation.

The natural values of the site are obvious. They include:
  • Endangered fauna of national significance.
  • Remnant native grasslands, grassy woodlands.
  • Rocky chenopod open-scrub of State significance
  • Threatened plants of State and regional significance
  • Geological sites of regional significance
  • An important link in the wildlife corridor along Jacksons Creek.
