Nomads Outdoors Group – Merri Creek & Inner Circle Rail Trail Walk

September 16, 2023

Enjoy a pleasant day walking along the picturesque Merri Creek on a moderate walk through the inner northern suburbs of Melbourne. The walk includes some hidden gems as well as a good array of birdlife, the result of many years of replanting indigenous vegetation. The often-shady trail hugs the creek intimately, with wetlands, cable suspension bridges, parks and veggie gardens. We then pick up the Inner Circle Rail Trail, with its remnants of the old inner circle rail line which once connected North Fitzroy to Parkville and is now a linear park.

This event suits those who enjoy nature, keen to learn more about the history of Melbourne and to train buffs!

GRADE | LENGTH | TYPE: Moderate, approximately 12.5 km point-to-point walk on mostly flat paths.

ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION: Our walk starts at the very popular Coburg Lake Reserve, where the Merri Creek will be waiting for us. After briefly exploring the lake, we make our way south along the Merri Creek Path where we will closely follow the creek over a number of bridges, parklands, wetlands and reserves. We will stop for lunch beside the Merri Creek to enjoy the views and sounds of the creek.
