Gardiners Creek Reserve (Ashwood - Burwood)




Gardiners Creek Reserve is a linear park stretching between Highbury Road and Station Street. Within its 2 km length, visitors can enjoy BBQs, picnic facilities, a playground and extensive walking trails that meander over bridges, around billabongs and alongside the creek itself.

The reserve has wetlands, good bird-watching opportunities, dog off-lead areas as well as BBQ areas and picnic facilities.

During the week the cafe at Deakin University which is located next to the track is open.

Review:


We started in the middle location of the walk near Malmsbury Drive, Ashwood and headed north to Highbury Road. This is the most interesting section and also extends across Highbury Road to the Local History Park to the north. At Malsbury Drive it is 1.2km to Warragul Road and 1.4km to Highbury Road.

On the side of the concrete path are some small wetlands areas. The path has Gardiners Creek (in a concrete channel) on one side which is fenced to stop access. After 500m you come across a playground with a birds nest swing, carousel and unusual slide plus an unshaded table. You feel quite isolated from surrounding houses by the strip of bushland.
