Grand Childrens' Walk - September 22

Please note change of meeting place and time following our recce.

Park at (Mel 21 H10 Eltham Lower Park, near the new facilities block). The walk begins by along the Diamond Creek and then along the Yarra River via Lenister Farm. Then turn left and cross the Yarra, then left after crossing the bridge into Candlebark Reserve and walk towards Petty’s Orchards.  Before reaching the orchard (at the end of the boardwalk) veer to the right and walk up hill and bear left onto a path that takes us down to an old dam. We walk along the edge of the dam and head west until we reach a mown track, onto which we turn right and head uphill next to the power lines.  Passing under the power lines we turn left onto a cleared access along a fence on its southern boundary and then take the path off to the right and walk for about 75 m and turn left onto a bike track.  We follow that bike path around a dam that eventually runs parallel (and behind) the houses on Fitsimmons Lane, following it back to the bridge over the Yarra.   Depending on demand we may turn left and do a short circuit into Westerfolds Park to use the toilets.  Then return to Eltham Lower Park for lunch.  Estimate 6 km.
