Starting from the Blackwood Oval car park on Craigburn Road, Craigburn Farm, this walk takes you on a circuit around Blackwood Hill Reserve via the Oval Link, Border Line Green, Magpie Creek West, Gully Blue and Clematis Connector tracks. Blackwood Hill Reserve is one of Mitcham Council's off-leash dog parks, adjoining Sturt Gorge Recreation Park on its western boundary, and is popular for walking, jogging, horse riding, mountain biking and dog exercising. Magpie Creek runs through the reserve, which has an abundance of natural beauty and open space, containing grey box grassy woodlands and diverse plant species such as blue gum, Christmas bush, rock fern hollyhock and river bottlebrush. The reserve features a number of shared-use trails, including the Tom Roberts Horse Trail, as well as two playgrounds and access to the football club oval, with excellent views of the surrounding Mitcham Hills. This loop consists of well-signposted, gently undulating fire tracks and shared-use trails, with some uneven natural surfaces, suitable for walkers and cyclists of average fitness levels. Dogs are allowed off-leash but must be kept under effective control at all times. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the Sturt Gorge Gate 12 carpark on Broadmeadow Drive, Flagstaff Hill, this walk takes you on a circuit within Sturt Gorge Recreation Park via the River, Fire, Wattle and Lomandra tracks. Sturt Gorge Recreation Park has a large network of shared-use mountain bike and walking trails, a spectacular rugged gorge with internationally recognised geological significance, cascading waterfalls, rockpools and creeks. This scenic and peaceful hike takes in the rugged beauty of Sturt Gorge while passing through a variety of vegetation communities along the way. Walk among the steep slopes of grey box grassy woodlands and Sturt tillite rock formations, and look out for the diverse range of native animals that come to drink at the waterholes along the river. Koalas, kangaroos, echidnas, kookaburras, cockatoos and rosellas are often seen in the park. Be sure to check out the amazing views over the gorge from the lookouts at the top of the Sturt River dam wall, near the end of the walk. This is an adventurous trail, with many river crossings and some rock scrambling. Take care on the trail surfaces, which are uneven and rocky in some areas, with narrow and slippery sections and occasional steep inclines and descents. After rain the rivers water levels may rise, and the stepping-stones across the river crossings may become submerged. There are no facilities in the park, so be sure to carry sufficient water, food and supplies for the entire hike. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
