Walking

There are extensive tracks for walking and cycling. Maps of the park are available at the park office.

Take one of the many walks available that range from half an hour to all day. Enjoy panoramic views of Westernport and Port Phillip to the west and south, and Dandenong Ranges to the north.

  • A pleasant short walk leads from Lysterfield Lake picnic areas to the dam wall. Please do not climb on the wall or dislodge rocks protecting it; stick to the track on top.
  • An 6.7 km walk takes you right around Lysterfield Lake. Cross the dam wall and follow Acacia Nature Trail, Casuarina Track, Lake Track and the trail through the conservation zone to Logan Park Road. Follow Logan Park Road or Lake Track back into the park to the main picnic area.
  • For the more adventurous, a 6.4 km walk (including return to the carpark) takes you up to Trig Point for spectacular 360° views of Melbourne. From the carpark at Churchill National Park, walk along Channel Track and continue when it becomes Stonemasons Track and Lysterfield Hills Track. This track leads you straight to the top of the hill.
  • At the picnic area of Churchill there is a 10 minute nature walk loop to enjoy.
