What our readers are saying:

I have recently undertaken the suggested walk in this edition, being Camberwell Junc to Central Park Malvern, which I found satisfying.

Mark’s response:
Firstly, Rob, I am delighted that you are enjoying the Burwood Walks. I am always amazed just how many little gems of parks are in these suburbs, and also enjoy the walking along the quieter residential streets.[…] This is what I had in mind: After walking diagonally across Cato Park, you reach Tooronga Rd (which goes south). We then have (sadly as I say in the notes) about 10 minutes walking south along busy Tooronga Rd. We do cross Toorak Rd, but there are traffic lights there. We then walk south along Tooronga Rd past the shopping centre (hence my comment about “temptations”)…
