1 Hour Walks

Birdsland - Belgrave Heights Walk

Updated: May 10, 2021


Important note: The entrance to the park is easy to miss on the bend & the driveway to the carpark is narrow & quite long. Car GPS units also seem to send people to a small gated walking track entrance on the other side of the park, so please use the street address or google maps link above or below for navigation.


This walk is a simple figure eight around the two lakes which can be done in either direction, starting & finishing at the carpark. If you choose to start from the left hand side, follow the road to the nursery a short distance then take the path to the right. The steep Bunjil track on the left takes you up to a nice view but is hard on the knees. If walking for the right, start on the path over the bridge to the right of the picnic shelter. bushland reserve.


The park has walking, riding and mountain biking trails. The Dargon Trail (steep) connects trail users to Lysterfield Lake Park on the other side of Wellington Road.


Many species of native wildlife find sanctuary at Birdsland. Over 130 different native birds have been identified in the reserve including the Wedgetail Eagle and Powerful Owl. Birdsland also supports over 200 species of native plants so it's well worth brining your camera.


The park opens at 7.30am daily & closing times vary seasonally, please check signs at park entrance for closing time. Birdsland is closed on days of Total Fire Ban.


The Southern Dandenong Community Nursery is also located within Birdsland Reserve & stocks a wide variety of local provenance indigenous plants, from Eucalypts to ground covers & grasses.
