A long and excellent walk through Darebin, taking the walker through lovely suburban streets and a park with a creek.
We parked around Kenilworth Lane and began doing a walk based on the Darebin Park loop, walking along the main road until reaching Salisbury Avenue. Some of the houses and gardens here feature beautiful gardens with pleasing well thought out designs.
After a short time Darebin Park is reached. This beautiful space has a wide variety of landscaping, plants and natural and artificial water features.
After a short ramble through the park the walk takes you back to the suburban streets of Darebin, once again crossing Darebin Creek over a larger bridge.
Here there are more gardens to admire, and maybe chat to some friendly residents.
Continuing on takes you past a view of the city, but it’s somewhat obscured by trees. A bit further on and you are back to your car.
