So decided to follow some of Stony Creek as I know it from next to the Child Care Centre in Court ST Yarraville
I started at the park area near Frances Street and walked along the creek as far as Somerville Road through Cruikshank Park.
Stony Creek flows through the inner western suburbs of Sunshine, Tottenham, West Footscray and Yarraville. Much of Stony Creek is highly modified and the surrounding catchment is mostly urban and industrialised. Natural reaches exist along some of the parks and reserves.
The Stony Creek Backwash is the area under Westgate bridge and marks the end of a journey at the Yarra.

The Walk was warm but under lost of trees. Met lots of dog walkers as some was an off leash Park. I don't trust Spencer off lead unless it is actually enclosed, so he was happy to trot along.
Unfortunately he now tends to wander back and forth in front of me, so need to be ever vigilant!!

The walk was under willows as well as weeping gums and the creek was flowing
A lovely morning!
