Description

Starting at Jacana Reserve (which meets another of our walks: "Station to Station - Jacana to Broadmedows") the walk snakes it way through a mix of grass land, residential back fences, open bush - however, always following the mighty Moonee Ponds Creek.

There are lots of interesting sights along the way - especially if you like birds! The walk is great for all walkers, however families please be careful as there is one road crossing at Fawkner Street.
