到达那里: This time I started from a carpark on Providence Road, which is off Mickleham Road (see 足彩预测 Note). Take the Mickleham Road exit from the Tullamarine Freeway.

评论: Having visited the park yesterday, I knew there was a carpark at the entrance to Back Paddock, near the 足彩预测 Information (see 足彩预测 Note map). However, when I arrived I realised that the road into the park was blocked just after the carpark at the entrance, so I had to walk the extra 750m (or 1.5km return) to actually enter Back Paddock (wouldn’t normally care but since it was my lunch break, time is obviously an issue).

On the way in, I walked past an old cemetery with signs saying it’s a significant indigenous site. I’ll have to go back and have a better look at that another time.

None of the tracks in the park seem to be marked but if you follow the turns on the map you’ll be fine. The track is wide and very easy to follow. I followed the track clockwise so you’ll need to take a left at the first T-intersection to go the way I went.

I was surprised by how many kangaroos there were in this part of the park. It seemed like everywhere you turned there were 5 – 10 more of them hopping away. I suppose this is because the Back Paddock is fenced off and therefore is safer than other areas.

The last section of the track briefly follows the dry bed of the 格林维尔 Creek. This was probably the nicest part of the walk.
