The vegetation in Seaview Park is a largely grassy landscape, dominated by Kangaroo Grass, Wallaby Grass and various Spear grasses. Scattered throughout are a range of wildflowers including Smooth Rice Flower, Silky Guinea Flower and New Holland Daisy. Clues to the marine origins of the area are evident in the presence of Coastal Wirilda, Coast Flax Lily and Slender Speedwell.
This mixture of plants shows that the land is what is described as an ‘ecotone’ – a place where different vegetation communities mix. In this case, the area is a combination of classic volcanic plains basalt grassland and remnant coastal grassland - generated through the changes in sea levels and the remnant rock left underneath.
The reserve has been a focus of the Geelong Field Naturalists Club. The club has installed several interpretative signs alongside the walking track. The reserve is managed by Council with integrated weed management including spraying, handweeding and burning. It is at its best in October / November each year when the wildflowers are out, and is especially attractive in the Spring following a burn.
We will provide transport from South Geelong, departing at 8.15am and returning around 4pm. Or if you live local you can meet on-site by prior arrangement.
