Warrawee Forest Reserve

Located close to Latrobe on the Mersey River, this idyllic reserve boasts disabled fishing lakes as well as river fishing for trout.

Managed by the Latrobe Landcare Group this reserve offers a quiet place to enjoy a picnic, barbecue, even a swim in the river or a stroll along the river bank.

Warrawee is a Tasmanian Aboriginal word meaning 'plenty' and within this reserve there is plenty of flora and fauna, including several rare plant species.

It is also a favoured placed to see a platypus, the best time being early morning or late evening when they are most active.

So come spot a platypus swimming amongst the reeds and trees that line the river from the viewing platform, located on the river bank.
