From the parking area in Schwerkolt Cottage Reserve, Mitcham, this return walk follows the creek from the reserve to the Whitefriars College and back. You can make it a one way walk by continuing along the trail to the parking area just of Park Road in Conos Court Reserve. This nice, shaded, mostly flat and paved walk is lovely for young children and prams. 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.
