Winifred Curtis Reserve
Is a 75 hectare private nature reserve located two kilometres south of Scamander. It is named after Tasmania’s most esteemed botanist.
The reserve is the last intact remnant of dry sclerophyll bushland, marshland and heathland in the Break O’Day Municipality, unchanged since the time of European settlement in the early 1820’s.
There are over 300 species of native flora and 80 species of birds, both land and waterbased.
There are over 7kms of easy walking tracks encompassing the 16 ecosystems. There is also a vehicular road enabling limited access.
It is free to walk in the Reserve to admire the plants and flowers but please do not damage them. Off road vehicles are not permitted. No camping, fires or collection of firewood; no hunting or shooting and of course no littering. Dogs are allowed on the tracks but on a leash or under close sight control.
