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. There is however one very awkward part of the walk and that is the section between Cato Park and Milton Parade.[…] The crossing of Toorak Rd is extremely difficult, as there is no distinct crossing point, (I waited until traffic lights went red and did the walk on a Sunday)…

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”)…

Tiny House Exhibition

More than Just a Tiny House

The New Joneses Tiny House was recently on display as part of the Whitehorse Seniors Festival. The brain behind The New Joneses is Tamara DiMattina, whose trip to Antarctica in 2010 led to her discovering and seeing for herself the effect we humans are having on our planet.
