About Me

My Photo
Mont Albert (Melbourne), Victoria, Australia
One of my personal objectives is to convince Australia's millions of TV addicted couch potatoes to make the switch and convert to bush potatoes! In other words, get out there and see the REAL Australia. Go bushwalking - by yourself or with someone! If you never never go, you'll never never know...!

Main Yarra Trail - Bedford Rd to Burke Rd Billabong

Pix taken on May 25, 2015,  on a 4 km  (return) hike.

Much of the Trail is squeezed between the Eastern Freeway protective fence and the Kew Golf Club perimeter boundary fence. Care is needed to avoid cyclists! The Golf Club is very large, extending to the Yarra - has several small billabongs and a large lake (Simpson's Lake for irrigation. Glass Creek runs through the Course. Access to the Golf Course is nominally limited to golfers.

The huge amount of fast-flowing traffic on the Freeway generates vast noise and fumes.
