Sunday 20 May 2018: Heidelberg to Diamond Creek and return

Meet at Southern Cross platform 9 at 10.15 a.m. and take the 10.21 to Heidelberg. From Heidelberg, we ride down Yarra Street to the Main Yarra Trail, and cycle along the Yarra Trail, through the City of Banyule, following the river past wetlands and a picturesque view of Finns Reserve, to Westerfolds Park. Follow the trail near the river through Westerfolds, crossing a newish bridge over the Yarra and head to Eltham.

There are two or three lunch spots in Eltham, or just north, to choose from, or alternatively for a longer ride, we can continue on the track to Diamond Creek, lunching there or returning to Eltham for lunch. Return home by train from Eltham, or cycle back to Heidelberg.

Distance from Heidelberg to Eltham is 15km (30km return). Extension to Diamond Creek is a further 12km return. The trail includes some modest hills. Some of the trail is not sealed; suitable tyres are a requirement.

Medium. Approx. 42km.
