Warringine Park is one of the best-kept secrets on the Mornington Peninsula. Declared a conservation park in 1994, the park is divided into four sections: Coastal, Wetland, Creek and Woodland, and is located between Hastings and Bittern. Each section has its own special value.
Managed primarily for conservation purposes, the park provides wonderful opportunities for passive recreational activities and has walking tracks through the coastal and creek sections. The beauty of the park can be quite subtle so take the time to pause and observe your surroundings – you won’t be disappointed.
As you stroll through the park you will discover: a bird watchers paradise with over 110 bird species including the endangered Great Egret and Lewin’s Rail; a haven for other native fauna species including the threatened Swamp Skink and Southern Brown Bandicoot; vegetation communities that include open woodland, coastal heathland, paperbark scrub, saltmarsh and one of the southern most stands of mangroves in the world.
There are two walking tracks – Bittern coastal foreshore 3.7km and the creek section 1.7km. Warringine Park offers you a chance to walk through some of the unique vegetation and coastal features of Western Port. Dogs are not permitted.
