October 3rd, 2010 at 8:27

Climb: 27 metres (as measured by RunKeeper)

Braeside Park feels quite remote even though it is quite close to Moorabin Airport and from some parts of the track you can see houses in the distance. Throughout the park there were all sorts of birds creating a nice soundtrack, although interrupted every few minutes by the small planes flying overhead.The park is quite well popular for bird watching and even has a birdhide and bird houses.

This was the easiest walk i’ve been on so far even though it was a bit longer than some of the others. The track felt completely flat the whole way. I was lucky enough to have perfect sunny weather as well which made the walk really quite nice. This is a great walk if you don’t want to drive too far but want a semi-bushwalk experience.
