Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What travellers are saying
- One of many trains in south east Mel;bopurnme. This one starts around Warrigul Rd where it splits from Gardiners Creek Trail.
Essentially it follows (to commence with) an obsolete steam rail line until it reached Alamain Railway station. At this stage it becomes largely a footpath along the electrified train line.
The paths themselves are well maintained and are shared with cyclists
It is my aim to keep walking sections until I reach Melnbourne. I am looking forward to the Camberwell part of the trip where once again it reverts to na disused rail lineWritten 24 October 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The Stockyards were an integral part of Melbourne's social and economic fabric from 1859 until they finally closed in 1987. Much of the historic stock route has been preserved, including the holding pens. Apart from the hardware, you can follow the old stock route, which has been beautified, and is now a hiker biker trail. When I visited, the trail was easy to follow and very interesting.Written 29 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Took a while to find this way to get to Jells Park, but now I have. I’m riding it up to three times a week. It’s in good condition, safe, with easy climbs and tunnels under major roads. Haven’t ridden the whole length as yet. Want to walk, or ride this trail is worth a look.Written 12 February 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The Maribyrnong River is Melbourne's second river. It is especially important to people in the north and west of the city. The river rises in the Macedon Ranges, near Gisborne. Early explorers called it the Saltwater River, but it was renamed. The name "Maribyrnong" is derived from the language of the Wurundjeri people. It may mean "I can hear the sound of a ringtail possum" or "salty river." The Maribyrnong River plays host to many indigenous animals and waterbirds. Dolphins are somtimes sighted in the lower reaches of the river. A trip along the Maribyrnong River is always rewarding. The view over the river valley from Avondale Heights takes in the city of Melbourne in the distance.Written 1 June 2022
- Little quaint secluded beach next to the Webb Dock. Which is not a bad think in any way. Actually this is why it is so nice. Children, lots of ethnic folk, locals. Everybody find here peace and contention. Far away from hip bustle of St Kilda et al. No showboating, misbehaving youth or inebriated characters here. It is super safe (next to Lifesavers Vic HQ) and local club members are always on patrol. Parking right next to the beach and behind is a fully equipped play grounds with distinct marine character installations and boardwalks.
Water quality varies like everywhere in Bay area but Docks and giant Vehicle Transporters really make no adverse impact whatsoever.
You may walk further to reach newly erected Sandridge Lookout (fine gravel pathway). This is a historic area with multiple visual display boards, telling the story of docks and the first Australian steam engine railway (1853). There are marvellous views of the Melbourne skyline, Port Melbourne, busy motor vehicles docks and Station pier.
Area is accessible on foot (35 min from Tram 109 Terminus), by cars and push bikes (segregated lanes).Written 23 December 2017
- An easy and flat track that connects box hill. It starts at the fantastic Koonung creek (which has great trail of its own). It than heads thru Elgar park and past miniature railway. You cross the busy Elgar rd using the traffic lights at belmore rd. The path than stays off road until crossing the quiet woodhouse grove. Next up you will ride past a nice little playground and large park area that is great for picnics and relaxation. You will come to a pedestrian crossing that will take you safely over busy station st. You than ride for a 1.4km past the greenlink nursery and a couple of great playgrounds until you hit the bushy creek reserve on Dorking st. After this you will come to Springfield park which is end of trail. After this point the roads can be quite busy so be carefulWritten 23 September 2016
