Lysterfield Park circuit

Wed Dec 22nd 2021

his 15km easy circuit is situated in the scenic Lysterfield Park in Melbourne's south-east. There are some gentle undulations but nothing too challenging. A good opportunity to experience some peaceful walking close by to Melbourne.  Parks Victoria have done an excellent job of isolating mountain bikers from walkers on most tracks. Cafe in the vicinity for afternoon tea. Walkers asked to contribute to Citylink tolls in addition to petrol fee.

Long Forest Conservation Reserve

Wed Apr 27th 2022 8:00:00 -3:30:00

The walk is approx. 14ks return, Magnificent views of the valley along the Coimadai Creek, ancient rock formations, remnants of an old house, the occasional abandoned mine, kangaroos, great diversity of native birds, frogs and so much more. Most of the track is great and reasonably easy but I've rated the walk as medium to hard because of the track condition as it's very narrow and steep in places and has lots of loose stones and branches and there will be some off track exploring too.
