Sweetwater Creek Bushland Reserve - Frankston

The Sweetwater Creek Bushland Reserve is one of Frankston's best kept secrets, but discovering its beauty and tranquillity has just got a lot easier.

Frankston is about 30 km from the Melbourne CBD, on Port Phillip Bay.

Frankston City Council has recently completed construction of a new single span bridge and board walk that sits well above the 100 year flood path, and makes exploring the reserve far more accessible in all weather. The bridge and boardwalk comply with the Discrimination Act by having handrails and a gentle slope.

The new bridge and boardwalk can be accessed from Caladenia Circuit, Sycamore Road or Lawson Avenue in Frankston South and features fencing to help protect the natural habitat of the creek and bushland reserve.

The official opening was the culmination of over 18 month planning and design which includes approval from the Department of Environment Water Heritage and the Arts, Department of Sustainability and the Environment, Department of Planning and Community Development, Aboriginal Affairs Victoria, Melbourne Water, APA Group (gas supplier) along with local residents and environmental groups.

I visited the Reserve on Sunday October 18, 2009, for a 4 km exploration of this 14 ha scenic reserve, which took me along Creek Track, Grange Bridge Track, and Granites Track.
