Plenty of choices for walks from 100 yards from car-park, to several km. Lots of bird-life. Picnic facilities a plenty, but unfortunately no toilets. A bush retreat right in Traralgon!

Surprising hidden gem in Traralgon. Loverly cared for by locals and loved by the locals. Extra special in springtime watching all the chicks and young of the resident birdlife being cared for by their parents.

Visit the Traralgon railway reserve quite often to have a picnic with family. New tracks have just been added that are a wonderful change. Need public toilets and BBQs.

There is no public transport there sadly but you could catch a taxi I guess. There is no public anywhere near by.
