Description

I love my walk to the train station! here's so much to see.

Visit Sydney Road for everything you need - butchers, grocers, cake shops, op-shop, deli, middle eastern spices and cafes!

The route also takes you to our local library, swimming pool, post office and train station. I've included a detour to Bridges Reserve, a really gorgeous park.

Walking the same route every day makes me appreciate how things look during different seasons too.

Points of Interest

1. Morning greeting

I'm not sure who this saint is but he looks like he's happy to be up early!

2. Calder Reserve

There's a small playground here. I wish it had a bbq and seats too.

3. School veggie garden

If you peek in the cracks between the fence, you'll see the school veggie garden! I think it would be good if the school had a wire fence so you can see what's growing in the garden.

4. Trugo Club

Whats Trugo? It sounds Italian. Must be a good game to play if theres a whole club set up for it!

5. Lawn Bowls Club

They play mostly on Saturday mornings I think. I've seen lots of people here, in their best whites (probably why I'd never be able to play - all my whites are attracted to food stains).

6. Coburg Leisure Centre

Coburg pool, spa and gym. Friendly staff, fun pool for kids and a much improved cafe.

7. Bridges Reserve

A lovely park to sit in, with benches, a weird sculpture and a bright red mural on the walking path. There's also a monument to Harry (who's Harry?), lovely flowers and a funny shaped tree.

8. Coburg Mall

A nice place to sit and listen in on the local gossip if you speak Italian, or Greek or Lebanese? Good spot for coffee and a great kebab/falafel. Post office is here too.

9. House on the corner

Who knows what this is! There's no explanation. I asked a bloke passing by - his theory was that it was a house for the pigeons. Unlikely. The mystery continues...

10. Coburg Library

Coburg library is fabulous! You can borrow up to 30 items at a time - I usually stick to 5.

11. Coburg train station

You can book Vline tickets here. Recent improvements with lots of new plants, separate lane for cyclists and better lighting and disability access. Good work!
