Completion of Loop Track at Glen Nayook!


It is very pleasing to announce that the refurbished southern section of the main track is now complete and therefore the original main loop track is now back in operation. New signs have been installed to guide visitors around the loop.

You are all cordially invited to revisit Glen Nayook and to enjoy the reopened loop track!

The Baw Baw Shire will be conducting a senior’s walk through Glen Nayook as part of the Victorian Seniors Festival. The walk will be held on Tuesday the 7th of October 2014 and will start at 10:45 am.

Friends or members of the public who are interested to join are most welcome.

Plant Lists

Two plant lists have been added to the site today, one for ferns and one for flowering plants. We hope these lists will be of interest to visitors who like to explore the flora of the reserve. Please contact us if you have Identified a plant which is not yet recorded for the reserve or if you would like to report an error. Your input is much appreciated.

We hope to publish a plant list for mosses and liverworts in the near future.

WELCOME to the opening of the Friend’s of Glen Nayook (FOGN) blog!

The purpose of our blog is to create greater awareness of Glen Nayook and its wonderful features. Initially this blog will be limited in size; however, its content will be expanded in the coming months to cover all features of “The Glen”, including comprehensive lists of indigenous animals, birds as well as native plants. To help us make these lists as comprehensive and up to date as possible, we encourage everybody to visit Glen Nayook and to contribute this blog any special things you has noticed during your visit. Experiencing this wonderful “little gem” is a moderate 45 minute return walk from the car park.

Please share your experience with other people who love Glen Nayook!
