Hidden Gems - Explore Brimbank’s paths for cycling & walking

Summary

Brimbank’s shared cycling and walking paths are a great way to get around and have fun while discovering Brimbank’s own back yard.

Many paths also connect with Brimbank parks – making a ride or walk to your local park a terrific (and healthy) family outing.

The Kororoit Creek Shared User Path links Isabella Williams Memorial Reserve (a Flagship Park in Albanvale) and follows the creek to Buckingham Reserve (a Flagship Park in in Sunshine West), before continuing to Brooklyn and beyond – linking with the Federation Path. Council has recently connected this Path with Melton City Council’s Bullum-Bullum Path, through a 500m link from Davitt Drive Reserve, through to Abercain Court.

Similarly, Taylors Creek Share User Path, which follows the creek from Calder Park through to Keilor Downs, links with several parks along the way, including Whiteley Parade Reserve, The Lakes Reserve (a Flagship Park in Taylors Lakes), and Calder Rise Park.

Work is underway to upgrade the Shared User Path at The Lakes Reserve, between Kings Road and Parmelia Road, and on to Sunshine Avenue. This work is expected to finish in May this year.

From Brimbank Park in Keilor East, the Maribyrnong River Shared User Path follows the river south past Sunshine North, through Maribyrnong and on to Footscray.

Many paths also connect with Paths beyond Brimbank, such as the M80 Shared User Path (which stretches from Tullamarine to link up with the Federation Path in the South) and the Sunshine Shared User Path (which connects the M80 Shared User Path to Sunshine Station and continues through Braybrook on to West Footscray, via Tottenham Station).

The Harvester Road Shared User Path is now open, linking Albion and Sunshine stations and filling in another gap in the off-road Path between Sydenham and Sunshine.

So what are you waiting for? Get on your bike, pull on your walking shoes and enjoy exploring Brimbank and beyond!
