Spring Plains Nature Conservation Reserve is a 1315 ha band of native forests. It lies along a line of hills and ridges formed from rocks much older than the rest of Mitchell Shire. To the east are McIvor Creek and a ridge of younger rocks in the Heathcote-Graytown National Park. The forest is recovering from mining and timber collection but is rich in native plants and animals. Numerous access tracks run off the Northern Highway from Hardings Lane near Tooborac north to the back of Heathcote. These lead to a network of old tracks good for walking and an old aqueduct between Heathcote and Tooborac to be explored. The Reserve’s northern half is in Greater Bendigo City.
