The 178 ha Long Swamp Reserve was purchased in two parts: 40 ha in 1992 and another 138 ha in 2016, both with thanks to the generous donations and support of the local community. The reserve is located along Cotswold Road, approximately 30 km west of Castlemaine.
Long Swamp Reserve is at the heart of the Mooloort wetland complex of 50 wetlands covering 1,000 ha and is one of only two large natural wetlands in the northern part of the Ballarat region.
Open by appointment.
All Trust for Nature reserves are closed on days of Total Fire Ban, and days of severe, extreme and code red fire danger.
