Hidden Gems - Discover Taylors Creek Trail

Brimbank boasts some beautiful parks and unique outdoor spaces, and the 3km Taylors Creek Trail in the outer suburbs of Taylors Lakes and Keilor is no exception.

You’ll discover the diversity of birdlife, natural landscapes and wetlands as you ride your bike or stroll through the magnificent Taylors Creek Valley. The trail takes you along Taylors Creek from Burrowye Crescent, Keilor to Sunshine Avenue. This is part of a longer walk that takes you from Watergardens Shopping Centre, Taylors Lakes to Brimbank Park, Keilor.

Along the way enjoy the views and the great display of native vegetation, the huge River Red Gums which are hundreds of years old, and if you’re lucky you will come across some wildlife. Remnant grasslands line the creek and there are several sites of major Aboriginal cultural significance. Taylors Creek, like all of the waterways in Brimbank, were places of significance for First Nations People for food, culture and gatherings.

Parks, playgrounds and shared user paths are a great way to get around and have fun while discovering Brimbank’s own back yard. And, thankfully our playgrounds, skateparks, outdoor exercise equipment and off-leash dog parks have reopened as COVID-19 restrictions are eased.  

It’s an easy way to enjoy some outdoor exercise all while observing good hygiene and social distancing measures, and remember to wear sturdy footwear, and as with all waterways, be snake aware.
