Geurie Cemetery and Bald Hill Reserve

A true birding gem of the area– the cemetery area and adjacent Bald Hill Reserve offer excellent birdwatching opportunities.

Here you can find many hard-to-find species including White-browed Babblers, Little Lorikeets, Black-chinned Honeyeaters, Crested Shrike-Tits, Diamond Firetails, Square-tailed Kite and Painted Button-Quail.

The vegetation is primarily Grey and White Box woodlands with areas of Cypress and Yellow and Fuzzy Box. The Reserve is located on the southern periphery of the village of Geurie, in the lower slope of the iconic ‘Bald Hill’.

There are three main areas, all with great birds:

Geurie Cemetery: a managed area surrounded by Cypress woodland – great for little birds.

The old Quarry: the quarry site is east of Arthurville Road.

The Reserve proper: the larger area west of Arthurville Road.
