Point Ormond Playground

The Point Ormond Playground now caters to all ages and abilities, with new accessible play equipment - including Beacon-style play structures and a wheelchair accessible carousel, BBQ areas, a picnic shelter, more trees, and an improved path network linking the playground to the Bay Trail and Beacon Hill Lookout.

Native vegetation areas

Point Ormond Reserve has high, local, ecological significance with thirty-nine plant species. All are indigenous to the region, contributing to the City's biodiversity. The proximity of the Coastal Dune Scrub to the CBD makes it one of the last, surviving, indigenous remnants in urban, Melbourne. Five regionally significant species are present:

  • Allocasurina vertillicata (Drooping Sheoak)
  • Alyxia buxifolia (Sea Box)
  • Corra alba (White Correa)
  • Myoporum insulare (Common Boobialla)
  • Olearia axillaris (Coast Daisy-bush).
