There are several small, narrow and rough tracks off the main paths which wend their way through the relatively thick bush and scrub. It was disappointing to see a lot of rubbish discarded on and off those narrow paths.
Looking skywards at tall long dead trees often brings some avian rewards. One such look spied two kookaburras. Kookaburras tend to sit in the one spot for extended periods which means you often don't see or hear them arrive.
Apart from wandering through this reserve there are two other interesting attractions in the overall reserve. At the entrance is the Montrose Community Playground, a large complex for children of all ages.
A walk through the Montrose Recreation Reserve Bushland is a reward in itself but combined with the two previously mentioned activities, it's a worthwhile destination. If it's football season, you can also watch some grass-roots footy.
