This loop walk starts near the Birdsland Reserve Carpark, on Mt Morton Rd, Belgrave Heights, leading along Monbulk Creek and looping around Lysterfield Park via the Dargon and Sunset Tracks. Enjoy this walk into the hills, through gum forests and meadows interspersed with diverse bush, with plenty of kangaroos and birdlife to be seen along the way. At the start, the track goes around a lake and provides lovely views of the water and the ducks. Further uphill, visitors are rewarded with views of Melbourne city, the outer suburbs, and the rolling hills all around. Dogs are allowed on a lead. The track can be slightly challenging at the start, with Sunset Track being very steep with gravel in places that can move under foot. Some parts can also get quite muddy. Also, be aware that there might be mountain bikers on the track. 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.
