Churchill Park Drive

Summer flowers on Powerline Track


A 2 km hike on Feb 24, 2017. This started at the small car park at the gated entrance to the Arthur G. Robinson bushland reserve, opposite Churchill Park, then along the powerline maintenance track to Power Rd, then continuing to the northern end of Clifford Park Drive. This roadway can no longer be accessed from this point, being blocked by a recently constructed high cyclone wire fence. However, Clifford Park Drive can be reached from its open southern end, which starts at Lansdowne Rd, off Baden Powell Drive or Power Rd.

The Robinson Reserve is next to the Churchill Park Golf Club and a partly overgrown sign (c.1966) indicates that the area is part of the Girl Guides scouting organization.
