Cycling at Brimbank

3 years ago from Parks Victoria

Location: Cycling and walking

Short walk

There is a network of cycling and walking tracks and an orienteering course within the park.

Cycle along the wide paths. The main trail follows the river and forms a circuit of 4.3 km. It links to the Maribyrnong River Trail, making it possible to walk or cycle from Keilor along the river as far as Footscray.

Accessibility Information

There are a number of walks that begin behind the café and many of these are well suited for wheelchairs and strollers. Most of the walks are sealed and are on reasonably level ground with slopes no greater than 1:14. One of the main paths takes you past the old Dodds Homestead and then alongside the old river gums on the Maribyrnong River.

Walkers have the option of crossing the river or continuing on the Maribyrnong River Trail which takes you to Picnic Area B. This trail is several metres wide and is a shared pathway with cyclists.  The walk can be done as a loop walk by turning off at Picnic Area B and taking the path up to the carpark and joining up with the Australian Plant Trail. There is a small slope leading up to the plant trail from the carpark and the track surface changes from a sealed to a compacted small gravel path surface. This trail takes you back through parts of the Brimbank Park Playscape and back to the café entrance. This walk takes approximately 40 minutes depending on your walking or wheelchair speed.
