M & I are both avid walkers, and we usually spend our weekends finding and making a trip to a new location in Melbourne to some walks.
We are average fitness peeps, so we try to explore easy, medium and hard all sorts of walks. Here, I’ll give you an overview of the Lysterfield Park walk that we did two weeks ago, and to say the least, it was amazing.
I’ll be brief, but if you have any questions with regard to it, please feel free to comment/message me and I will respond 🙂
Located just in the outer south-east of Melbourne, the park is a gem! It offers sailing, horse riding, walking and biking trails, and beautiful picnic grounds along with a cafe. So everyone can have fun in whichever activity they enjoy.

For walking, there are multiple trails that range from easy to medium and difficult. Some tracks are shared with the bikers, but the tracks are so wide that it is not a problem.
For an easy walk you can do 8km Lake Circuit trail which starts from the Dam Wall and takes you around the lake. However, M & I did an extended lake circuit, which took us to the difficult track of going further up Lake track to go on Powell’s track following Boys Farm Track joining into Lambert Track and merging into the Logan Park track.
So if you are up for adventure like us, you can do that same, because what we saw and met on our way was amazing…:)

Apart from kangaroos we also found some nice vegetation…like mushrooms:

It was a great day to spent at the park and I would love to go again soon. You don’t recognise how close this amazing place is to the hustle bustle of Melbourne, right after the housing ends and the Apple Orchards start there is this gem.
It’s a quite, peaceful and spiritual place too.
