The Blackburn Creeklands consist of three continuous bushland reserves along Gardiners Creek in central Blackburn.

Blacks Walk, Kalang Park and Furness Park form a green corridor featuring a delightful mixture of both bushland and open space areas. Great walking tracks follow the course of the creek as it traverses the splendid Eucalypts and more recent native plantings, cared for by local volunteers.

Volunteers and council help preserve the local environment whilst providing opportunities for a variety of recreational and educational activities. For more information about the Blackburn Creeklands Advisory Committee and their activities please click on the link.

DOGS: Please note the dogs must be kept on-leash in all parts of the Blackburn Creeklands walk.
