Hochkins Ridge Flora Reserve is a Parks Victoria park.

Hochkins Ridge Flora Reserve is 18.6 hectares of forest situated at the southern end of the Great Dividing Range. It is the largest and most botanically diverse flora reserve in Maroondah.

The reserve was named after the Hochkins family who sold the property to the State Government and Croydon City Council. In 1983-84 it became a crown land reserve with the purpose of preserving indigenous flora and fauna and a Committee of Management was appointed.

The flora within the reserve includes long leaf boxes and red stringybark – messmate and peppermint eucalypts. The understorey includes 14 varieties of wattle, orchids (27 species) and various members of the lily family.
