Our eighteenth walk takes us to the very east of the Burwood Bulletin “catchment”. The length of this walk is approximately 7km. We start this walk in Glen Waverley, exploring Shepherds Bush, Dandenong Valley Parklands and Jells Park, generally walking in a southerly direction.
Walk along Toorak Road towards the city and turn into the first street on your left – Myrniong Street. Manchurian Pears, paperbarks, lilly pillys and olives make this a lovely stroll to a large park which we enter beside a big oak. In fact, this whole walk features many attractive street trees.
Our sixteenth walk takes us to an area which is quite shady; namely the wonderful Blackburn Lake Sanctuary. The length of this walk is 6km, more if you explore the sanctuary. We start this walk at Laburnum Railway Station and walk through the Blackburn Creeklands to the sanctuary.
Our fifteenth walk takes us northerly village to village, from Burwood to Mont Albert. This walk starts in Burwood Village and is about 6km.
Our fourteenth walk is a continuation of the twelfth walk, starting at Tally Ho Business Park, in Burwood East, then walking to Glen Waverley and Vermont South. This walk is about 6km, plus 2km for the return bird- hide walk.
Our thirteenth walk goes to visit Burwood’s very own university – Deakin. In particular, we will be looking at the interesting Sculpture Walk set up by the University Art Gallery. The 7km walk includes bush and parklands to complete our circuit from Burwood Village.
Our twelfth walk goes south from shady Witchwood Gully Park, with its small playground just west of Burwood One Shopping Centre, coffee and toilets. Melway Map – 61:J7. This walk is between 7km and 9km long.
Our eleventh walk goes south from Burwood Station all the way to Hughesdale, where it joins the Dandenong line. The walk as described is about 8 kilometres, but you can shorten it easily by starting at either Ashburton (saving 1.5km) or Alamein (2.5km) stations.
Our tenth walk features Valley Reserve, a favourite place for many local residents. This 5–6 kilometre walk starts and ends at the main entrance to Mount Waverley railway station (southern side).
Our ninth route features the Wurundjeri Walk and is approximately 7km, but there are options to shorten it. We begin the walk in Burwood East at tram stop 69, Melway Map 61:J6, very close to Burwood One shopping centre. If you drive to the start of the walk, street parking is available in Witchwood Drive.
