Nardoo Hills

Established: 2004
Area: 1,207 ha
Location: 210km north west of Melbourne

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. These reserves are one of the few healthy examples of grassy box and box-ironbark woodlands left.
