Description:

A haven for wildlife and native vegetation, Reef Hills State Park near Benalla is a great spot for a picnic, scenic drive, bushwalk, bike ride or horse ride. The park will delight visitors year-round, with wildflowers blooming in spring, wattles flowering in winter and large yellow Guinea-flowers on display most of the year. The park was worked for reef and alluvial gold in the early 1900s and today prospectors may be still be lucky enough to find gold. The forest is an important remnant of the original vegetation of the northern plains of Victoria and is valued by naturalists for its wide range of plant and animal life, including nationally significant flora and fauna. Enjoy picnics, scenic drives, bushwalking, horse riding, bird watching, bicycle riding and recreational prospecting. Picnic areas are provided, but there are no facilities for camping. Nearby Benalla has hotel, motel and campground accommodation. The park is about 200km north east of Melbourne, about 4km from Benalla. It is easily accessible from the Hume and Midland Highways.

Our birdwatchers group went here recently. We got 43 birds for the day, including a rose robin and white browed babblers. Lovely bush area with good understorey. It turned on a beautiful day for us too.
