Campbells Croft Reserve and Wetlands - Abbey Walk (Vermont)




There is plenty of open space to enjoy and many specimen tree plantings throughout the open grassed areas. Children can enjoy watching the ducks swimming in the creek below the suspension bridge.

Together Abbey Walk and Campbells Croft are approximately 14 hectares of bushland and open space. Dandenong Creeks runs along the east with Boronia Road to the South.

Abbey Walk, northern section of the Reserve, is approximately 4ha of native vegetation and gently rising grassed areas.

Campbells Croft falls into at least five distinctive areas being:-
The Pines - about 2 ha of extensive plantation of Pinus radiata located on the high western slopes.
The Meadow - large grassy open space located centrally within the Croft. Exotic trees including Elms, Poplars, Oaks, Silver Birch gives the park user a relaxing English feel to the Croft.
The Ridge - northern section of the Croft this area is thickly vegetated with a large variety of both native and exotic plantings, Eucalyptus, Pines, Cotoneaster, Pittosporum etc. This area gives a wilderness feel to the Croft.
Remnant Swamp Woodland - a very cherished area of the Croft, consisting of significant areas of high quality remnant vegetation.
Wetlands - recently upgraded, this magnificent area is a natural overflow for the Dandenong Creek floodings. It is a large area of indigenous vegetation with thriving aquatic and fauna species.

Review:


You can park along Abbey Walk to get access to this area. There is a path along Dandenong Creek and then the path goes away from the creek as you get to the Campbells Croft Reserve area. The trees are labelled if you have an interest in flora identification. The path goes past ponds with water birds and eventually ends at busy Boronia Road. When you reach the road you can walk downhill, cross the road and reach the Dandenong Creek Trail.
