Point Richards Flora and Fauna Reserve

The Point Richards Flora and Fauna Reserve was originally allocated for the conservation of southern brown bandicoots. At 62 hectares, it is one of the largest areas of native bushland and ephemeral wetlands on the Bellarine Peninsula and is dedicated to the conservation of indigenous plants and wildlife.

Easy pedestrian access is available off Boat Road and Point Richards Road. From either entrance, you can explore the network of trails that transect the reserve and showcase the unique natural and ecological features. Download a copy of our walking map to guide you as you go – Point Richards Walks.

We also have a Kids Activity Booklet to help immerse the little ones in the environment, or you can follow the HAIKU Poem Trail which was created in partnership with the Port Arts Network.
