A beautiful nature reserve in Wallington, Victoria

Edsall Reserve is a large grass recreation reserve, located at the corner of the Bellarine Highway and Wallington Road, not far from Adventure Park and the Flying Brick Cider House.

The reserve is beautiful, with lots of trees, large grass areas, and a creek running through the middle of the reserve.

Unlike some other reserves, there doesn't appear to be any walking trails, however there are plenty of large, open areas to go for a walk and explore the area.

There are two picnic tables located at the reserve, for those who wish to have a bite to eat and take in the scenery.

The reserve is located right next to the busy Bellarine Highway, so there is a bit of traffic noise, however the reserve still has a sense of tranquillity about it.

I didn't notice any toilets, rubbish bins, play equipment or sports facilities, so if you're looking for a reserve with those facilities, I'd probably recommend nearby Wallington Reserve instead.

Overall, it's a nice place for a nature walk or a picnic.

If you're visiting the reserve with young children, just be aware that the reserve is unfenced, and highway can be very busy (with an 80km speed limit in that section). The creek is also easily accessible.

Parking: As you drive into the reserve, there are small areas for parking next to the road and turning circle. Edsall Reserve Bus Stop is also located just outside the entrance to the reserve, for bus services into Geelong.
