This reserve is in the heart of Heathmont, between Campbell Street and the railway line. A newly constructed wide concrete path runs between the reserve and the railway, making an excellent short trip for wheelchairs, with the best display of wildflowers visible from that path.

The path side of the reserve is fenced but most of the wildflowers are easily viewed from the path. Several visible signs request no dogs or picking the wildflowers, which is good advice. The path is also part of the Heathmont Rail Trail.
On the Campbell Street side, there are a couple of entry points, but most of the flowers are on the other side. There are no defined paths within the reserve, so if you enter be aware of small native plants which can be easily crushed.
In springtime, this reserve is well worth a visit, particularly if you have children with you to observe many wildflowers at close range and not a long walk through the bush. The playground would be an added attraction.
