Our twenty-fifth walk begins at Glen Waverley Railway Station, and finishes at Mount Waverley Railway Station. Public transport users in Burwood Bulletin’s catchment area have a large number of options to reach this station. There is a large bus terminal just beside the station. The walk is about 6km (depending upon how much “exploring” you do), and is mainly level. Melway maps 71 and 70 cover the route. If you have binoculars, bring them along.
