Yatmerone Reserve

Yatmerone Reserve

With over 30 species of birds living in the wetlands, Yatmerone is a popular bird-watching area providing a place where visitors can appreciate the local flora and fauna as well as catch a glimpse of native wildlife.

The Reserve is fed by a spring being one of few deep Fresh Water Marsh Wetlands in the area, and so provides a habitat and summer refuge for plants and animals A trail along the edge of the reserve takes walkers through a small native parkland, providing plenty of opportunities to photograph the local flora and fauna. A bird hide can be found only a few hundred metres down the trail and provides a place for bird watchers to observe the bird species as they go about their business. Completely hidden from their view, the bird hide provides a perfect place for photographers to capture the bird and wildlife as well. The 13 hectares are designated for Nature Conservation and managed by Parks Victoria for the purpose of wildlife management.
