The Ocean Grove Nature Reserve protects the last remaining stand of original woodland on the Bellarine Peninsula, making it a haven for many native plants and animals and a popular location for visitors.

Originally known as Cuthbertson’s Paddock, the reserve was purchased in two parts following a public appeal with the intention of creating a National Park. Today the reserve covers 143 hectares and represents one of the last remaining stands of native woodland on the Bellarine Peninsula. Wildflowers, including lilies and orchids, can be found throughout. The reserve is also well known for its healthy population of wallabies, Echidnas and Ring tail and Brush tailed possums.

The reserve is a haven for bird life including honeyeaters, wrens and Whistling kites. It is a popular place for bird watching and has several basic bird hides located adjacent to small water points. Over 160 species of bird have been recorded in the reserve!

You will be assisting Parks Victoria with the enchancement of the natural beauty of these reserve with revegetation activities.
