LOCATIONBaretta - South of Margate
DESCRIPTIONAdjoining the Barretta Waste Transfer Station is a surprisingly diverse bushland reserve.

This bushland reserve comprises approximately 30 hectares of vegetation, managed by Kingborough council with support from local community landcare groups. Baretta Reserve contains four different plant communities, making it an excellent site to stroll through and compare the different communities side by side. An abundance of native wildlife live in the reserve including bandicoots, potaroos, Tasmanian devils, quolls and Bennetts Wallabies.
Travelling through the reserve you will notice the changes from open woodland with long grasses and Bennet wallabies to the sparse silver peppermint forest at the top. Raptors can sometimes be seen in the dead wood on the larger trees.
