Melbourne’s best quiet suburban walks
Posted June 16, 2020
Escape the crowds at these undiscovered Melbourne walking tracks.
There's nothing like a walk in the fresh air to clear your mind. And, after weeks confined to close quarters, it seems everyone wants to get out and stretch their legs. The only trouble is, many of Melbourne’s best-known walks are getting a little crowded, which makes it hard to maintain that all-important 1.5-metre social distancing.
The good news is there are some fabulous lesser-known trails in and around the suburbs, where you’ll be surrounded by nature and birdsong, rather than other people.
From forest forays, to riverside strolls, to an enormous golden Buddhist statue, here are some of our favourite places to escape the city bustle without leaving town.
