Oswin Roberts Reserve trails are great for hiking, mountain biking, and trail running, and is open year-round and is beautiful to visit anytime.
The reserve is a testament to the legacy of Florence Oswin Roberts, who not only gave the 150 acres to the people of Victoria, but also cared for scores of koalas burnt in bushfires.
Most famously of all, she was the only private individual legally permitted to keep a koala, Edward (actually a female), with the beloved animal stuffed upon its death and now on display at the Phillip Island Heritage Centre.
The surface is fine gravel and grass
