Travelling Stock Reserves (TSRs) are an important part of our cultural and natural heritage.

TSRs provide pasture reserves for travelling or grazing stock. These reserves can be beneficial in times of drought, bushfire or flood. They are also used for public recreation, apiary sites and for conservation.

These parcels of land are balanced to strike a balance between the needs of travelling or grazing stock and the conservation of native species.

The vegetation on the TSR is White Box Yellow Box Blakely’s Red Gum Woodland, a listed ecological community both under state and commonwealth legislation. The land has been subject to the long term impacts of grazing and has been under further threat from invasive weeds.

The removal of invasive plant species will assist the natural regeneration of the native vegetation that belongs to this important ecological community.

What you can expect:

-Giving back by looking after a piece of public land

-Learning about travelling stock reserves

-Helping to conserve natural and cultural heritage

-Being out in nature with nice people
