* Please note that the reserve is closed until further notice due the devastating bush fires of January 7th 2015. 80% of the reserve was destroyed, and it will take several months to make the reserve safe for the public to resume walking there. A team of volunteers, Macedon Ranges Shire Council staff, inmates of the Loddon Prison and Malmesbury Youth Training Centre will be working very hard over the coming months to restore the reserve to it;s former beauty.

105 hectare reserve comprising Black Hill, a large series of granite outcrops, great walks, views, wild life etc.

Ample parking, map, information board, picnic tables at the main gate. Walking tracks only, no bikes horse etc., dogs on leashes please! Brochures that include a map are available at the main gate.

Main Circuit Track about 4km around the base of Black Hill, picnic tables half way around at The Monolith, a huge granite boulder.

The Ridge Track walk is just under 3km, a couple of steep sections and many steps to negotiate. Magnificent rock formations and views.

The walk through the re-vegetated area is only 1.7km and very easy, a great chance to see kangaroos.

The Reserve is maintained by the Friends Of Black Hill, a group of motivated volunteers. We would welcome you to our little piece of heaven!
