Fairfield to Dights Falls Return

 Meet at Eltham Station 0915 for a 09.21 a.m., departure (last carriage).  The walk will take about 2.5 hours. Alternatively meet at Fairfield Station at 0950.  (advise leader if you take this option). Mel 2D F3 covers the walk area.Leaving Fairfield station we will walk to Fairfield Parklands via Rathmines St to the path that runs beside the Merri Creek and follow it to the junction with the Yarra at Dights Falls.  Then walk upstream beside the Yarra (adjacent the freeway) to Yarra Bend Rd.  Turning left onto this road and following it for 250M we will turn right to skirt the VINC Plant Nursery.  At the rear of the parks works depot we will walk back down to the Yarra via the Flying Fox Area.  The walk upstream continues along the Yarra on pretty bush tracks towards Fairfield Boathouse.  There are toilets nearby at this point.  Probably stop for refreshments at Fairfield before walking the 500 m back to Fairfield station. - Neil Smith 0406 524 740
