The Ocean Grove Nature Reserve is located just besides Kingston and contains the only significant remnant of native woodland on the Bellarine Peninsula as it was prior to European settlement. The reserve has great value for birds, plants, mammals and invertebrates. Extensive paths meander through the reserve.
The Friends of Ocean Grove Nature Reserve work to educate the public about the Ocean Grove Nature Reserve’s fauna, flora and habitat and assist in weed control, planting, protection of vulnerable plants and maintenance of the visitor centre.
There is a planned direct link from Kingston to this reserve in the future.
