Enjoy a gentle walk through the open spaces of the Broadmeadows Valley, passing by indigenous bushland and grassland.
GRADE | LENGTH | TYPE: Moderate, approximately 12 km, point-to-point walk on sealed and unsealed walking and cycling tracks.
ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION: This winter’s day walk offers a good opportunity to get outdoors, socialise and get some exercise. We’ll carry on regardless of the weather, just dress accordingly to keep warm and dry. The walk commences at Roxburgh Park Railway Station as we make our way through quiet streets and urban reserves to reach the Broadmeadows Valley Trail. We follow the shared walking and cycle paths through the open spaces of the Broadmeadows Valley reserves for the majority of this walk. A good planning feature of the trail is the use of underpasses at most streets, leaving only a few road crossings for the entire journey. Throughout the walk we pass by patches of remnant and re-vegetated bushland and grassland. There are several covered picnic tables spread along the route for our use for rest breaks and lunch. Some plane spotting throughout the day is topped of with a view from the hill in Johnstone Street Reserve across to Tullamarine Airport. To conclude the walk we make our way through to Broadmeadows Railway Station to commence the return journey. Trains depart for the city every 20 minutes. We should arrive back in the city between 3:00pm and 4:00pm.
BOOK by Thursday Thursday 13th June. To PURCHASE and for more details, please follow http://tdy.cl/se/uN9na3E to GET a TICKET on the Nomads website.
