Knox Nature Discovery Passport

The Knox Nature Discovery Passport is your guide to the top 50 bushland reserves in Knox. Use it to explore your local biodiversity and win prizes in our geocaching treasure hunt.

The nature passport highlights key features for each reserve such as:

  • walking tracks
  • playgrounds
  • accessible paths
  • wildflowers
  • wildlife spotting opportunities.

The reserves are also sorted by suburb so you can start with those close to home and then continue exploring others in neighbouring suburbs.

Pick up your Knox Nature Discovery passport at:

  • your local Eastern Regional Library
  • Knox City Council office
  • a Knox Children and Family Centre
  • your local Neighbourhood House, or
  • the Knox Environment Society Nursery.

Geocaching for discovery stamps

In 20 of the reserves, a Knox Nature Discovery stamp has been hidden in a special box (geocache).

Find these geocache boxes by uploading the free Geocaching app to your phone and entering the reserve name. Once you have found the box, stamp your passport with the Knox Nature Discovery stamp. Each reserve has a different stamp to collect.

Prizes for stamps

You can win a selection of indigenous plants and kits from the Knox Environment Society as prizes for stamps collected.

  • 5 stamps = butterfly kit (a selection of indigenous plants to attract butterflies)
  • 10 stamp = bee kit (a selection of indigenous plants to attract bees)
  • 15 stamps = a selection of 10 indigenous plants
