A review of The 100 Acres Reserve Management Plan (1996) was completed in 2010 and improvements include continuing to improve the Reserve’s biodiversity, weed and pest control programs, protection of rare or threatened flora species, path upgrades, signage and changes to dog controls in high conservation areas.

Fire safety at The 100 Acres Reserve

All Manningham reserves are closed on days of total fire ban, or higher extreme or catastrophic Fire Danger Rating. Visiting a reserve on these days places you at risk and potentially in danger.

To check the current Fire Danger Rating or find out if it’s a total fire ban day, go to the CFA website

What we do to reduce fire risk at The 100 Acres Reserve

Finer fuels such as leaf litter, tree branches and twigs raise the level of risk within reserves. Large fallen trees require a much higher level of heat to burn and provide habitats for native wildlife.

Here are some actions we take throughout the year to reduce the fire risk at this reserve:

  • create and maintain fuel breaks within the reserve
  • maintain grass heights with slashing, brush cutting and tractors year round
  • remove fine fuels such as loose and fallen branches
  • annual inspection and maintenance of Fire Access Tracks, to ensure emergency service vehicles can access the reserve
  • inspect access points, gates and locks

We manage 20 per cent of the land in Manningham, but the other 66 per cent is privately owned. Visit the CFA website for information on how to prepare your private property for fire.
