Mullum Mullum Cultural HeritageTrail




The Mullum Mullum Creek Trail is a shared use path for cyclists and pedestrians, which follows Mullum Mullum Creek in the outer eastern suburbs in Melbourne.

The path is currently split into two sections, which will soon (2009) be linked to form one continous trail from Templestowe to Croydon.

Until this link is constructed, the two sections of the path between the end of the Yarra River Trail in Templestowe and Tindals Road in Donvale is the lower section, while the section between the end of the Koonung Creek Trail in Donvale and Highland Avenue in Croydon is the upper section.

The missing section is currently being constructed in two parts. The section between Tindals Road and Park Road in Donvale is currently under construction and is set to be open in 2009, while the section between Park Road and the end of the Koonung Creek Trail in Donvale will be constructed in the near future, with a detail planning study having been completed.

I walked a 4 km (return) section of this interesting trail on November 28, 2008. I started at the access point at Rupert St, Ringwood, crossing the suspension bridge and continued through to Oban Rd.

Part of this section of the Trail is designated as the "Cultural Heritage Trail Loop", with many interpretative signs describing the Aboriginal heritage and history of the area.

The Trail is very popular with walkers and cyclists, with seats placed along the route, and it's maintained by Maroondah Shire and the local Landcare Groups.
