The City of Whitehorse has more than 350 beautiful parks and 20 bushland reserves catering for nature lovers, walkers, cyclists, children and adults.
Many of these areas contain natural remnants of the original vegetation that existed before development.
Bushland Reserves provide a home for local native wildlife and help preserve wildflowers and other indigenous vegetation.
The Whitehorse Environmental Education Program runs free events in Whitehorse Bushland reserves. Follow us on Eventbrite for more information.
