Check out The Briars these holidays!


Enjoy a wonderful walk through the Wildlife Sanctuary. The Briars Wildlife Sanctuary is remaining open so you can exercise and enjoy the peace in beautiful surroundings.

Please note entry is one-way for your safety.

The Briars is a beautiful conservation park in Mt Martha, off the Nepean Highway. The Briars sits on the land of the Bunurong / Boon Wurrung Traditional Custodians.

There is so much to do at the Briars – come for a walk with the wildlife in the Sanctuary where you might encounter koalas, kangaroos, echidnas and more. Bring a picnic or barbecue or step back in time as you explore the Heritage Homestead – one of the oldest European Homesteads on the Mornington Peninsula. Events, festivals and markets are run throughout the year as are school holiday and family programs.
