Easy track
Starting from parking area in Birdsland Reserve, Belgrave Heights, this circuit walk follows the flat gravel path along the Monbulk Creek. A great little walk for small children with lovely water views and great for birdwatching. Dogs are welcome too but need to be kept on leash. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
