Supported by the Warranwood Landcare Group.

Upcoming Activities:

BBQ & Bushcare Evening - Friday November 17th 6.00pm – dark

Meet at the Playground in Bemboka Rd. Warranwood. Melways 36 C9

The Warranwood Landcare Group is holding a free BBQ at 6.00pm in Warranwood Reserve, followed by a Bushcare Evening to remove environmental weeds in the area around the playground until dark. A group member will show participants the difference between the indigenous vegetation and environmental weeds, so no experience is necessary. Participants will learn more about our local bush and will help protect it, and in doing so, will meet some of their neighbours.

So why don’t YOU join us.


Wear strong shoes or ‘wellies’. Long sleeves and trousers recommended.

Tools & gloves provided

Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult who is responsible for them at all times.

The Warranwood Landcare Group consists of local residents, who work in Warranwood Reserve and would welcome new members.

Powerful Owls in the Reserve.

Powerful Owls have often been observed in Warranwood Reserve and were recently photographed by one of our local residents, Wim van Eyk who has kindly granted us permission to display them on our website, so please understand that these photos are copyright and may not be used by others without his express permission.

Warranwood Reserve.

Warranwood Reserve is an 11 hectare (27 acres) bushland reserve located in the City of Maroondah, some 26 km east of Melbourne, in the state of Victoria, Australia.

It is situated in a primarily urban area, although larger than average blocks along its eastern boundary allow an extended tree cover and reduce the population pressures which might otherwise exist. Much of the reserve was set aside for drainage purposes and there has been considerable modification to the natural drainage lines and removal of vegetation due to the installation of drainage and sewerage pipes. Despite these site alterations, the reserve still contains a diverse and fascinating variety of flora and fauna, mainly because of its steep slopes and varied aspects.

The reserve is managed and maintained by the Maroondah City Council together with the participation of the Warranwood Landcare Group's community of volunteers .

With the approval and assistance with Maroondah Council, we organise regular activities to maintain and improve Warranwood Reserve and surrounding areas which may negatively impact Warranwood Reserve. Our focus is on weeding & replacing weeds with indigenous plants. No experience is needed. Medium fitness is required. Volunteers should wear sturdy boots and weather appropriate personal, protective equipment. We supply all required tools. These activities help to promote community engagement by enhancing the amenity of the area.
