The Hallam Valley Trail is a 10km circuit opened in May 2014 that meanders through the Hallam Creek Valley among native wetlands and picturesque surrounds. Sweeney Reserve, where we will start the walk, boasts both sport and leisure facilities including football, cricket, baseball/softball, soccer and tennis facilities along with barbecue facilities and a playground.
The trail has two main parking areas, one at each end of the trail) located at KM Reedy Reserve (11 Pound Road, Hampton Park) and Sweeney Reserve (70I Melzak Way, Berwick).
This walk starts at the football ovals, along the trail to some pretty wetlands (Hallam Main Drain Reserve) and then back the same way.
The tracks are mostly flat, small gravel or concrete and wooden bridges. Some sections of the path can become flooded following rainfall and there are a few main road crossings so care should be taken with young children and pedestrian crossings used where possible.
