Burwood Walks #28: Favourite Reserve Walk (part 2)

07/03/2020 Mark Learmonth

Our twenty-eighth walk begins where Part 1 finished in issue #155, on the corner of Burwood Highway and Elgar Road (Tram Stop 62), and will finish near Burwood Village. The reserves around Burwood have strong points of attraction, so choosing a favourite will be a challenge. I do hope that you enjoy the second part of this challenge. This walk is approximately 6km, and can be followed on Melway maps 60 and 61.

Burwood Walks #26: Grace Park Walk

29/08/2019 Mark Learmonth

Our twenty-sixth walk begins at Stop 27 on the Route 75 tram (Melway 45 B10), and finishes at Stop 23 (2H J7). This tram runs through much of the Burwood Bulletin catchment area. Parking can be a challenge in this area, so it may be a good idea for drivers to catch the tram for part of the journey. The walk is about 5km (depending upon how much exploring you do), and “undulating”. Melway maps 45 and 2H cover the route. If you have binoculars, bring them along.

Burwood Walks #25: Glen to Mount Waverley

15/07/2019 Mark Learmonth

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.
