Lobethal Bushland Park could easily be missed by people who don't know it's there.
Tucked away off of Kenton Valley Road, Lobethal, this gem of our parks collection is 118 hectares of beautiful natural landscape, two reservoirs, and a modest recreation area for family picnics.
The reserve has very high flora diversity (194 species) with 12 species of conservation significance, and a multitude of fauna, though they remain hidden most days and it's the birdsong that catches your attention. It also has five separate walking trails of varying difficulty that are perfect for welcoming the change of season.
Council has recently installed updated signs around the park that identify facilities on site, note the significant Heritage Area within the park, and areas of note including Stringybark Forest and Butterfly Valley.

Much of the information and photos used in this project could not have been possible without the support of the Friends of Lobethal Bushland Park.
