St Katherine's Church & cemetery, St Helena

St Katherine’s Church and Bushland Reserve, Greensborough

A pleasant and easy walk through Eltham North, visiting a lovely disused church and cemetery.

This walk takes you around a lovely area with many pretty, colourful gardens.

The description is accurate until reaching St Helenas Road. The church is about 400m on the left down the road in Anthony Beale Reserve. Enter the reserve and then turn right into the sign posted church car park driveway.

On the way back, the instructions are not quite right. From Karingal Drive turn left into Weidlich Street and then after 100m turn right to follow the waterway which runs parallel to Karingal Drive. Walk on the left track, as the right-hand one quickly becomes impassable, until reaching Ramptons Road.

Follow Ramptons Road up the hill and around a sharp bend to return to your car.
