Caring for Australia' remaining bushland. Held annually in spring, Bushcare' Big Day Out (BBDO) is a national day of community participation to restore remnant bushland. BBDO is a day designed to give every one of us the opportunity to find out more about our bushland. We are organizing a major bushcare activity in Warranwood Reserve at the Kardinia Crescent end of the reserve. More details to follow.

Welcome to 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.

Warranwood Reserve is managed and maintained by the Maroondah City Council together with the assistance of community volunteers organised by the Warranwood Reserve Special Committee of Council.

The Committee meets on a regular basis to liase with Maroondah City Council on reserve issues and to organize events and programs for community participation such as working bees for planting and weed control.
