Since European settlement Victoria has lost 83% of its woodlands to land clearance. Combined with drier weather this has seen a dramatic decline in woodland birds. This reserve is one of the few healthy examples of grassy box and box-ironbark woodlands left.

Established: 2004
Area: 1,007 hectares
Location: 210km north west of Melbourne

John Griffin wanted to leave a legacy for future generations and this reserve is his special gift - an ancient woodland haven for bushland birds, a home for endangered reptiles and mammals, and a place where rare and beautiful plants such as the red-cross spider orchid can thrive. 

Established: 2011
Area: 96 hectares
Location: 185km north west of Melbourne
