Description

This walk has it all - a beautiful creek to walk and sit next to, lots of sport options, native flora and fauna, playground, BBQ facilities and public toilets. You could spend all day exploring and walking around the Reserve. The Reserve is a very peaceful pocket of an otherwise busy residential area - it is the perfect spot to get away from it all!

If you want to walk further than 3km then you can keep heading north following the Darebin River and once you have gone under the Ring Road tunnel you will meet the Metropolitan Ring Road Trail which you can take either west or east.
