The Mordialloc Creek Reserve is a 4 hectare bushland preserving indigenous vegetation along Mordialloc Creek, which supports five ecological vegetation classes (EVC’s).


The reserve is home to the best remaining examples of Estuarine Reedbed, Estuarine scrub, Swamp scrub, Brackish Wetland and Tall marsh in the Melbourne metropolitan area.


The creek is home to many species of water birds, while terrestrial birds and mammals utilise the vegetation along the banks.  Sightings include the Buff-banded rail, Purple Swamphen, Great Egret,White-faced Heron, Royal Spoonbill, Nankeen Night-heron, Spotted Pardalotes, Eastern Rosella and Rainbow Lorikeet.   

Common Brush Tail and Ringtail Possums nest along the creek and appear at dusk, while in the warmer months the Lowlands Copper Head snake may be seen basking in the sun as well as frogs, skinks and small mammals. 


Council Rangers and volunteers from the Friends of the Mordialloc Catchment care for and maintain the vegetation along the creek while the nearby Mordialloc College and Yarrabah schools undertake revegetation and litter removal works in conjunction with the council on a regular basis.
