Reviewed 29 November 2016

The Gresswell Nature Reserve is actually a series of reserves adjoining Latrobe University. There are many access points and some lead to wide, easy walking tracks, while others have steep slopes and are overgrown. Most "gates" would not admit a wheelchair, so you could say that a lot of it is inaccessible. It is any area popular for picnics and children's play. A map would be handy as the major reserve is big enough to get lost in. Some bus routes come close (eg #561 to the Vincent Street entrance). There is plenty of wildlife and birdlife, but not always visible. Some friends have reported seeing many kangaroos in some parts.
