Lower Dandenong Creek Nature Reserve - Dandenong North

As an outcome of the extensive  weed control project along the Lower Dandenong Creek Reserve under management by Melbourne Water and the Greater Dandenong Council a new scenic nature reserve has been created alongside the Creek. This is reached by a gravelled track leading from the Dandenong Creek Trail, about 1 km south of the intersection of Brady Rd.

It winds its way through  rejuvenated forest, leading to a lookout over the Creek.

Colorful Information boards have been placed along the cleared track, describing the fauna and flora in the area. Seats have been provided along the route. New plantings of native shrubs line the track. Old logs from bushfires have been retained. The track is suitable for walking, bikes, and hounds! Platypuses and fish reside in the creek.
Beware of stinging bees and other flying insects!

Limited car parking is available on Brady Rd, at the trail access gate.

My exploration was on January 20, 2021, about 3 km total, 90 mins, including photo stops.
