The man-made wetland park of the Mansfield Mullum Wetlands is a popular place for those who wish to enjoy a walk through bushland at their own pace. It is on the western edge of the township and extends along the north side of the Maroondah Highway all the way to Bonnie Doon.
Go for a peaceful walk through the wetlands and enjoy native birds, plants and animals.
The walking trail begins right next to the Visitor Information Centre and seating is available along the route. Allow 45 minutes for the 1.5 kilometre return trip.
Please drop in to the Mansfield Visitors Information Centre, next to the start of the walk, to obtain your free map and ask about the Rail Trail which continues to Bonnie Doon, or visit the Rail Trail website.
