Churchill and Lysterfield National Parks
Distance: 16 km
Walking Time: 4.5-5 hours medium grade, some uphill sections.
Through Churchill National Park, we follow a series of tracks up to Trig Point, with some lovely views out over surrounding suburbs. Along the way, expect to be watched by swamp wallabies and kangaroos that are plentiful in this park.
Heading down towards Lysterfield Lake we turn off Casuarina Track onto the historic Tramline/Granite Peak Track that takes us back to Trig Point to retrace our steps back to the start.
