Lerderderg Heritage River Walk
The Lerderderg Heritage River Walk, James Cann Reserve, Blackwood, starts near Garden of St Erth, looping along the Lerderderg River. Enjoy a leisurely walk through changing forest landscapes and along the mountain ash-strewn ridges above the flowing Lerderderg River. There is a wide variety of flora to be seen, and sometimes Koalas can be spotted in the area. Your four-legged friends are welcome but must be kept on a leash. The area has a gold mining history, and there are some deep unfenced mine shafts. The track can get muddy after heavy rains, and there are a few fallen trees and overgrown sections, but it is otherwise well maintained and easy to navigate. 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.
