The Ocean Grove Nature Reserve protects the last remaining stand of original woodland on the Bellarine Peninsula, making it a haven for native plants and animals. The 143 ha site, situated along Grubb Rd, Wallington, Australia on the outskirts of Ocean Grove, is serviced by extensive walking tracks accessible all year-round.  Walkers can enjoy easy trails that wind their way through a range of bush habitats.
