Hussey View Walkway

COVID-19 update on parks and tracks

The Government is asking for everyone to stay at home. Their advice is that you can go for a walk or exercise outdoors for a short time, and to stick to simple walks or exercise spots close to home. 

When you are out, you must stay two metres away from anyone who is not in your household.

Parks and cemeteries are open for pedestrian access only, and where possible we have closed off park car parks.  Please do not use any play equipment or exercise equipment.

The following are closed:

  • Public toilets
  • Playgrounds, play equipment or exercise equipment in parks
  • The Botanic Gardens
  • Car parks within parks are closed for vehicle access
  • Visitor and information centres, i.e. Bottle Lake Forest and Travis Wetland
  • The Spencer Park animal area
  • Fenced dog parks, including Horseshoe Lake, The Groynes and Styx Mill Reserve. All other parks are available to exercise dogs in
  • All Council-owned sports facilities e.g clubrooms

Start: Car park off Hussey Road, near Willowbank Wildlife Reserve

Finish: Same as the starting point.

Time: 20 minutes return.

Toilets: In the car park.

Dogs: On a leash at all times on the walkway. There is a designated dog exercise park in Styx Mill Reserve.

Description: The Hussey View Walkway is a circuit track that follows the Styx River as it meanders slowly through the reserve. The walk is on flat, very easy terrain with a firm gravel surface, perfect for wheelchair and buggy users.
