Oswin Roberts Reserve

Experience a variety of landscapes within Oswin Roberts Reserve and beyond with the Bush to Bay walking trail. Situated just behind the Koala Conservation Reserve, Oswin Roberts is perfect for those looking to wander further through native vegetation after a visit to see the koalas.

Breathe in the fresh eucalypt while spotting koalas, wallabies, and echidnas and listening to native birds singing in the trees in one of the last remnant patches of native woodland on Phillip Island. You can help to protect this rare habitat by keeping to tracks.
