Graham Road-Pretty Hill Trail, Kangaroo Ground

A walk from Eltham and Environs Walking Group.

Walk Description

From the Eltham Environs Walking Group, walk 44E

Commences at the Western end of Graham Rd, adjacent to the former Eltham Tip. Proceed along the signed track around the boundary of the Wycliffe Centre, following the fence line on the left, then across the footbridge. Track continues uphill – at certain times of the year flanked by long grass. Turn left at Wattle Glen-Kangaroo Ground Rd, proceed 400m (with the possibility of long grass again), then turn left into Hillview Ct.

At the end, a horse trail becomes Pretty Hill Lane, and ends at Lorimer Rd. If there is time, and the chance to extend the walk, turn left at Lorimer Rd, and continue to the transmission lines or beyond to the junction of Lorimer, Reynolds and Orme Rds.

An alternative extension is to turn right at the Lorimer Rd-horse trail corner, and continue towards Kangaroo Ground-Wattle Glen Rd. How far you go along this section of Lorimer Rd will be dependent on time available. To return to the cars, follow the same route via the horse trail and Graham Rd Trail. Since 2011, the loop walk around the Old Eltham Tip has been closed. It may reopen in the future.
