Easy track
Starting at the Goshawk Car park on Federation Picnic Area Road, Braeside, this walk loops within Braeside Park via the Howards Road, Wetlands and Red Gum trails. This calming loop walk meanders through woodland, grassland, heathland and wetland on a flat track, making it easy to forget that the suburbs surround you. In the wetlands, you will find side trails leading to viewing areas and a bird-hide, providing a great opportunity to watch undisturbed birdlife and appreciate flora and fauna. The visitors centre has information about the park, and there are picnic areas with toilets facilities along the way. Watch out for bikes and horses on the Red Gum trail, as it's a shared trail. Be aware that snakes may be present during peak seasons (October—May), so avoid walking off the trail. Dogs and other pets are not allowed in the park. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
