Located on the banks of the Sunshine Creek, which flows 2 Km from near Forest Drive down the hill to Port Phillip Bay, Sunshine Reserve is a biolink to Mt Martha Park and Fairbairn Reserve.The Boonwurrung people called Sunshine Creek ‘Ballern Ballern’, thought to be derived from the indigenous word for creek, ‘Balun’.
The Friends of Sunshine Reserve undertake monthly working bees, working in partnership with the Mornington Peninsular Shire. Working in the reserve provides valuable opportunities to learn about our native bushland, and its resident flora and fauna, whilst contributing to its preservation and maintenance for future generations.
