Challenge Valley - Dandenong Police Paddocks

Boardwalk

Photos on a 2 km hike on July 21, 2017. This started at the junction of Brady Rd and Greenbank Avenue, then along Brady Rd though the picnic ground to Baden Powell Drive. Then into Challenge Valley, which was used for the 1964-65 Seventh Australian Scout Jamboree, and on to the Wetland Walk. Sadly, the scouts had gone! The no-name creek running through the Valley was explored, which I named Challenge Creek. Two large black stones were discovered next to the creek - these appeared to be of meteoric origin. the Creek feeds into the Retarding Basin, before crossing under Power Rd.
