Walk Description

From the Eltham Environs Walking Group, walk 49E

Commences from the roundabout at Dorking Rd and Wimmera St, Box Hill North. Proceed in a NW direction (towards the city) along Bushy Creek, initially parallel to and north of Wimmera St. Cross Station St (not sign-posted here), and proceed to Woodhouse Gv. Cross Woodhouse Gv, and look for the continuation of the trail diagonally to the right. Walk to Elgar Rd (again not sign-posted), cross the road, and walk to the junction of Belmore Rd and Elgar Rd. Enter Elgar Park here, and follow the path which runs alongside Elgar Rd for 350m. Turn left, and follow the path here called Koonung Creek Path, and which runs beside the Eastern Freeway. Sound barriers considerably reduce the noise from cars and trucks, making walking more pleasant than might otherwise be expected. Follow the path to Doncaster Rd (about 1.8km). Continue along the underpass to a small picnic area and toilets. To return to the cars, simply follow the route in reverse.
