The walk loops in and out of Unsworth Reserve (where dogs were playing happily off leash), which has a stormwater pond and a children’s playground. There are also lovely bush areas where today the birds were singing.

Went looking for this walk. Enquired at Meadowood Community Centre as no bushy areas were visible nearby. They hadn’t heard of it. On the map, Unsworth Reserve is a long way away from the Meadowood Community Centre, but certainly looks bushy and attractive. Will go directly to Unsworth Reserve next time.


Hi Robin,
Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.
We decided to document our short circular walks to help locals and visitors discover walkways and reserves that are “hidden” away with no signage. We have published our circular routes in books and brochures (with a map and directions) – you can download individual brochures.
