Best local walks 

Autumn is here! And with the weather is still warm (some days!), we are all excited to get outdoors and enjoy the sun, nature and spending time with our loved ones. It’s a great opportunity to explore the great parks and trails that our area has to offer and also get some more exercise into our week. We have made a list of our favourite parks, walks and trails in our local area to inspire your next family walk, coffee catch up or new cardio spot. 

1. Wilson Botanic Park 

Oldie but a goldie! And our neighbour! Many in the area know that Wilson Botanic Park is a must visit spot on a sunny day any time of the year. With kids playgrounds, BBQ areas and multiple walking trails around the whole park, it has something for everyone. Whether you want to grab a coffee from the kiosk and relax by the lake, grab a friend and walk up the hill to see the fantastic view or even pop your head into the information centre and brush up on some local Berwick history.

2. Lysterfield Lake and Park

Located 15 mins from Berwick is a great family park, walking and bike trail. Lysterfield Lake has great facilities and walking paths around the lake, you can even swim, kayak or paddle board on the lake! But the broader Lysterfield Park has many hiking and mountain bike tracks for the more adventurous and is even home to the State Mountain Bike course.

3.Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne 

Located in Cranbourne is an amazing collection of Australian Native gardens. The park has over 450 indigenous plant species! You’ll be able to explore over 10km of walking tracks, six kilometres of cycling tracks, a lookout tower, barbecues and playgrounds. A great day out to explore beautiful native gardens, pop into the cafe and they even have a shuttle bus that can take you through the whole gardens if accessibility is an obstacle but you still want to enjoy the gardens!

4. Berwick Springs Lakes and wetlands 

In Berwick South there is a lakes and wetlands system located in the Beaumont Waters and Berwick Springs estates. With multiple walking and bike tracks, playgrounds, fishing spots, birdwatching and a big ol’ fountain in the middle of one of the two lakes, what’s not to like! And for those out there who want to start running, get back to it or want a friend to do it with, there is an organised 5km park run every saturday at 8am that is a community favourite. Visit the park run website for registration information Berwick Springs parkrun

5. Bayview Park (AKA 1001 steps) 

Lastly but not least, a newer addition to the area! The Bayview Park walking track only opened in 2019, but it has been quickly embraced by locals as a great fitness and walking track with amazing views of the city of Casey, Western port and Port Phillip Bay. It has exactly 1001 man made steps making it accessible for people of many fitness levels and ages, with the name and concept being inspired by the Kokoda Track Memorial walk (also known as the 1000 steps) in Ferntree Gully. No need to waste your weekends driving there when we have one (and 1 extra step!) located in Narre Warren North.
