Connected with nature
Aurora is also conserving one of Victoria’s rarest native vegetations, Temperate Grassland, which has been long preserved by the Wurundjeri and Woiwurung peoples, the traditional custodians of the land. This natural wonder is yours to enjoy from Aurora’s trails and bike paths, with 14 conservation areas encompassing 25 hectares of native grasslands, rich with wildflowers and indigenous flora. Their colours mark the changing seasons, from lush green in spring and summer to red and brown through the cooler months, connecting you with the natural cycle of the earth.
