About the park

Boronia Bushland Reserve provides a range of facilities and activities including bushwalking, picnic tables, toilets, barbecues, children's playground, water, bikeways, walk the dog (on a leash), wheelchair access and bird watching.

Eastern Grey kangaroos can still be found in Boronia Bushland Reserve, one of the last large remnants of natural bushland in this area.

As you meander through the park, look for some of nature's signposts, such as bandicoot diggings and scratch marks on trees from goannas, possums and koalas.

You'll also find many magnificent Scribbly gums, identified by a multitude of scribbly lines covering the smooth grey trunks. These markings are often referred to as 'Nature's graffiti', and are formed by the larvae of a Longicorn beetle burrowing under the bark's surface.
