Open Day Explosives Reserve

September 2, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Explosives Reserve, Altona

Have you ever travelled down Queen Street in Altona and wondered what is behind that long corrugated iron fence? Well, now is your chance to find out by taking a guided tour, and learning all about the history of the reserve and the plants and animals that reside there.

A guided tour will show you the remnants of the Explosives Reserve and how the reserve is managed presently. You’ll also get a chance to learn about the indigenous plants in the area. If you find yourself waiting for a tour you can take a self-guided walk around the Under Keeper’s residence and the Keeper’s residence gardens.

The Keeper’s residence is still closed for restoration.
