Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield, explained the installation of a viewing platform in the north-west corner of the reserve will provide a secluded vantage point to look out across panoramic views of Western Port Bay.

"An alterntive walking path will also be constructed which will allow visitors to access more areas of the reserve, and experience its diverse habitiats and landscape," Cr Rothfield said.

"The pathway will include a timber boardwalk through swamp scrub, allowing access while keeping visitors out of the low lying areas during the wetter months, and protecting the vegetation."

These works are being undertaken in partnership between Bass Coast Shire Council and Phillip Island Nature Parks, each contributing approximately $50,000.

During the works traffic and pedestrian management will be in place and there may be some disruptions for visitors to the reserve. Walkers are advised to take care during the period of construction.

A new boardwalk section will be constructed as part 2 of the Scenic Estate Conservation Reserve development.
