Summary

Walk around Eltham via historical streets and lower park

Description

Lower Eltham Park, via Lavender Park Drive, Eltham. Commences at the carpark opposite Eltham Library in Panther Place. Walk to Main Rd, and turn right. At the lights (cnr Main Rd and Bridge St) cross twice to be diagonally opposite Alistair Knox Park. Walk to John St, and turn left. At the first street encountered, which is Bible St, turn right. Walk to the end, and turn right into Dalton St. Almost immediately, turn left into Metery Rd. Continue along Metery Rd, crossing Mt Pleasant Rd, and then passing the historic Eltham Cemetery on the left. At the next corner, turn right into Lavender Park Dve.

Walk to Leonard Cres, which is the second street on the right, and turn right. Walk to the end. Cross a small grassy area as you turn left. Turn sharp right at the next corner into Antoinette Bvd. Just before arriving at Main Rd, turn left onto the walking path. Cross the pedestrian bridge across Diamond Creek, and continue on the path with Eltham Lower Park on your left. A few metres after the main gates, turn left into the Park. Continue on the path as it moves in and out of the park. At the end of the path, you will be on Homestead Rd. Continue in the same direction, then turn right at the first road.

Just before the footbridge across the Yarra, take the left path. Do not cross the river. Follow the path which turns left almost immediately. When the path veers left, turn right for a look across the river from the observation deck. Return to the path, and pass the Pony Club buildings. Look for a signed earth path on the right. Take this loop until it rejoins the main path just before the miniature railway maintenance buildings.

Pass the station, then cross the rail line at the crossing on the right. Follow the path, then exit, turning right. Just before the footbridge, turn left under the road bridge, and enter Barak Reserve. Follow the path, staying within the Reserve, and crossing a footbridge after the path turns right. Continue along the path, then walk in the same direction along Bell St. Near the end of Bell St, turn right onto a path alongside Diamond Creek (the path is on the right). Pass Eltham Leisure Centre on the left. Cross Brougham St, then a footbridge. Continue along the path with the creek on the right. After walking under the bridge (Bridge St), turn right, and cross Diamond Creek. Turn left along the walking track. Just before arriving at the trestle railway bridge, turn right across the grass to arrive at the parked cars.
