Used the internal tracks for jogging while I was there. It was just bush with some tracks through it, but that's what I like. About 3.5k around the perimeter. It is fenced and gated to protect the wildlife within, which I only saw Roos which weren't scared of you at all!

Gresswell Nature Reserve is actually three interlinked wildlife habitats of over 70 hectares in area. The largest, Gresswell Forest is accessible via a number of entry points in Greensborough and Macleod. It is incorrect to describe this area as parkland, it it is a significant native flora and fauna habitat in its own right. Gresswell Forest itself has a significant population of kangaroos. This is a real gem and bonus for this area. The Gresswell Habitat link in turn joins with Strathallan golf course and the Latrobe University wildlife sanctuary. The north east is blessed not only with Gresswell Nature Reserve but also Bundoora Park and Plenty Gorge Parklands. Do yourself a favour and check out your local area!!

Wouldn't believe that a forest with Kangaroos roaming freely is accessible so close to the city.
Well preserved patch of forest with frequent wild kangaroo sighting. Great place to have a serene walk

We have visited here may times over the years and have never been disappointed - but we have been lucky to see kangaroos each time. We have even seen joeys still in the pouches which was extremely exciting for our overseas visitors. The reserve is lovely and peaceful as you walk through, but can be tough for older people as the pathways are gravelly and there are not a lot of places to have a sit down. A good place for a walk or a run, and lovely that it is maintained by passionate locals.
