A WALK ALONG DAREBIN CREEK

The Darebin Creek Trail is a shared use path for cyclists and pedestrians which follows Darebin Creek in the inner and outer northern suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The path consists of an 8 km section north of the Western Ring Road and a 17 km section south of the Western Ring Road. The two sections are separated by a 0.85 km section of path along the Western Ring Road Trail.

These photos are from a section of the Creek between Darebin Rd (South) and Bell St (North), as illustrated on the last satellite image. The industrial area to the West and the residential area on the East are separated by the creek reserve in the middle. This is a welcome patch of nature not only for humans, but for animals as well. On this walk we saw the omnipresent ducks, some galahs and rainbow lorikeets.

  12. Very interesting post! What a lovely area set aside in the city! It was interesting that you added the satellite photo to help with the perspective. Otherwise one would think it's far out in the country! And wonderful birds! Love your photos.
