The Penderel Court entrance opens onto an open grassy area which is a designated dog off-leash area. Dogs will love the wide grassy slopes particularity chasing balls or frisbees. It will give them a good work-out while you watch.
Your first view of the bush, set in a shallow valley.
The reserve is surrounded by properties, but they are on acreages rather than residential size blocks. It was pleasing to note that much of the private properties were left in a natural state, which visually enhances the size of the reserve.
Bird life was not noticeable with the exception of one quiet, noisy minor feeding in a gum tree. The reason for the lack of birds could be that the whole area is sparsely populated giving our avian friends a very large area to feed in.
While this is an out of the way reserve which would only be known by locals, your dog may like a run in a different environment. You too would enjoy a pleasant half an hour walking around this remnant bushland.
