    Branching off this Trail between The Royal Park and Jewell railway stations is the Upfield Shared Path for cyclists and pedestrians. With some minor interruptions, this path extends to near Gowrie and is good quality bitumen with some on-road sections. Currently interrupted for level crossing removals between Moreland and Coburg and for housing being built at Jewell station, it is a well used and popular route to the North. It has many useful interconnections with shopping precincts and roads.

    One of many trains in south east Mel;bopurnme. This one starts around Warrigul Rd where it splits from Gardiners Creek Trail.

    Essentially it follows (to commence with) an obsolete steam rail line until it reached Alamain Railway station. At this stage it becomes largely a footpath along the electrified train line.

    The paths themselves are well maintained and are shared with cyclists

    It is my aim to keep walking sections until I reach Melnbourne. I am looking forward to the Camberwell part of the trip where once again it reverts to na disused rail line

    This is a very popular running or walking track that surrounds The Royal Botanical Gardens.

    My wife and I walked on sections of this track during our visit to The Gardens. There are scenic views to enjoy during the walk.

    Came here with family for a day out to do the 1,000 steps track. It had something for everyone as not all could do the challenging walk. Some opted to stay at the playground and some did the easy track. There were lots of people for a weekday and a large school group but it did not deter the experience we all had which was enjoyable. Topped it off with lunch at the cafe on site.

    The Herbarium Discovery Walk is contained in the Royal Botanic Gardens. For anyone with an interest in plants, it is quite fascinating. It is quite easy to find. The Discovery Walk is not all that long, but it does have a satisfying level of informative material. The Botanic Gardens visitor centre is located on Birdwood Avenue.
