Harry Pottage Reserve, Macleod, VIC

Bring kids to Harry Pottage Reserve (Not Hogwarts)

Contrary to what you might think, Harry Pottage Reserve wasn’t named after Harry Potter! It is in fact named after Harry Pottage, a councilor who prevented the site from becoming a housing development. At present, Harry Pottage Reserve has a playground that features curved slide, wave slide, ladder, climbers and a whole lot more to keep kids entertained, engaged and active. Fur parents can also bring their pets here as long as they are on chain, cord or leash.

This nine-hectare reserve was once part of the Mont Park Psychiatric Hospital grounds. Here you’ll find remnant River Red Gum woodland that’s home to many different bird and animal species such as barking owl, swift parrots, tawny frogmouth, black and yellow cockatoos, pardalote striated, spotted scarlet robin, etc. You can bike around this area or walk your dogs as long as they’re on a leash at all times.

Have a picnic at The Cascades Waterpark

Meditate through the sound of the running water and the chirping of birds at The Cascades Waterpark. The grassy picnic spot is just alongside the creek where you can spot some ducks that aren’t afraid of petting as long as you share your food with them! Frogs and (occasionally) turtles are also spotted in this area.
