Long Forest

The Moorabool region is a hiker’s paradise. Surrounded by stunning wilderness, native flora and fauna, gorges, rivers, picnic grounds, mineral springs and trails to suit hikers of all experience levels, there’s something for everyone in our State parks and forests.

The Long Forest Flora and Fauna Reserve is a Conservation Reserve; an ecological island which is unique and important in its nature. The Reserve lists over 400 native plants and 160 bird species.

Long Forest Reserve has basic visitor carparking at Canopus Circuit and Happy Valley Trailheads (carparks). No toilets, drinking water or rubbish bins are provided and camping is not permitted.

Visitors need to be self-contained to enjoy the bushwalking, birdwatching and other wildlife viewing opportunities on the reserve’s management vehicle and walkers track network.

Long Forest Flora and Fauna Reserve is managed by Parks Victoria. For more information visit the Parks Victoria website.
