Wetland Walk - Dandenong Police Paddocks Reserve

A  3 km hike on February 23, 2017. 

The area, wthin the Dandenong Police Paddocks Reserve, was reached from the Wonga Track, starting at gated Baden Powell Drive, passing through bushland and scrub.

This large property was once forest, cleared in 1963 for the nine-day 1964/65 National Scout Jamboree, as the site for many of the competitive physical and activity-based events for the 16,000 scouts who attended. A watercourse ran through the area, which assisted in "mud action" competitions for the scouts!

Following the Jamboree, the land was taken over by Parks Victoria and a walking track, bridge and boardwalk were constructed.
