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.

Burwood Walks #24: Caulfield Racecourse Reserve Walk

03/04/2019 Mark Learmonth

Our twenty-fourth walk begins at East Malvern Railway Station. For public transport users in Burwood, SmartBus 903 runs south along Warrigal Road on its journey to Mordialloc. After Ashwood, it descends into Holmesglen. Leave the bus here, go to Holmesglen station, taking a citybound train for just one station to East Malvern. The walk is about 7km, and mainly level. Melway maps 69 and 68 cover the route. Sections of the walk have no tree cover, so prepare accordingly. If you have binoculars, bring them along.

Burwood Walks #23: Bellbird Dell

23/11/2018 Mark Learmonth

OUR twenty-third walk begins at the 75 tram terminus at Vermont South Shopping Centre (coffee anyone?). This tram runs through Burwood for walkers who live along this route. We start the walk at the terminus (Melway 62 G8). The whole route is on Melway map 62. The walk is about 7km, and offers two choices of route (more about that later). If you have binoculars, bring them along.
