Fairway Reserve via the Scotchmans Creek Trail
2 h 15 min to 4 h
Starting from the Fairway Reserve carpark on Forster Road, Mount Waverley, this walk leads through the Scotchmans Creek Linear Park via the Scotchmans Creek Trail. This scenic walk winds through indigenous vegetation teeming with a multitude of birdlife. Following the path of the Scotchmans Creek, it goes past the Fairway Reserve, Huntingdale Wetlands, Oakleigh Golf Course and Caloola Reserve. The trail alternates between wide, grassy and narrow, forested sections, on a broad concrete pathway shared by walkers and cyclists. Many frogs, ducks and kookaburras can be spotted along the way. This track is well shaded and maintained, with mainly flat terrain throughout and some short hills. Beware of speeding bicycles passing by, as they can catch you by surprise. 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.
