Enjoy a scenic walk from Mordialloc to Seaford, with an early exit option at Carrum, following creeks, wetlands, canals and the Patterson River.
GRADE | LENGTH | TYPE: Easy to Moderate 10 km, or Moderate to Medium 16.5 km point-to-point walk with public transport connections. The route is entirely flat on a mixture of sealed and gravel paths.
ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION: Travelling to this event by public transport is recommended. Upon arrival at Mordialloc Station, we'll head for the Mordialloc Creek Path, following that, then the Long Beach Path, through Aspendale, Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach to Carrum (10 km) where we can have lunch on or overlooking the beach. If you're overheating at that point, you may be tempted by the beautiful white sands of Carrum Beach, or you could catch a train from the new skyrail Carrum Station. Those hardy souls wishing to carry on will follow the Patterson River a short distance upstream then wander through the canals and suburban streets of Patterson Lakes to reach the Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands, and follow that virtually to the end, to exit via McKenzie St to get to Seaford Station. Some light refreshments can be partaken at the nearby Spanish Bar, just beside the station in Station St, prior to boarding a train home (with departures every 10 minutes).
