Currawong Bush Park Walks (Doncaster East)




Currawong Bush Park is filled with stories to tell and gives residents the opportunity to experience a 'wilderness-like' experience close to home.

There are eight walks to pick from, each focusing on different aspect of the reserve; from traditional interpretive subjects such as flora and fauna, through to park and local histories, land management, seasons, day and night, and tours for different age groups. Walks start and finish at Currawong Bush Park, Reynolds Road, Doncaster East.
