Dandenong Police Paddocks - former Tree Conservation Area and Community Garden


Photos of July 18 2017, a 2 km exploration of the part of the site used for the 7th Australian Scout Jamboree held in 1964-65. The route was along rough paths in the bushland formerly known as the Tree Conservation Area and Community Gardens,  created in January 1965 for the Jamboree. Saplings planted at that time are now mature trees - sadly, some have died due to lack of adequate water - the Area is bisected by the Creek, which is now dry. Many of the surviving trees are non-native, and the area has been invaded by blackberries, weeds and thistles. A central walking track starts at Greenbanks Avenue.
