Starting at the eastern end, it is mainly uphill with some sections probably a little steep for wheelchairs. At this point is the entrance to the Olinda Creek Wetlands, which has wide flat paths, very suitable for wheelchairs and the mobility challenged and offers some water views.

The highlight of this walk was the sighting of several magpies. A normal occurrence in the streets of Melbourne, but I saw one land in the fork of a nature strip tree where a nest had been built. Upon landing several small heads popped up with open mouths. A rare and beautiful sight.
Several years ago, Lakeview Drive was a mecca to view Christmas lights with almost every house lit up with Christmas themes. It was so popular, busloads of tourist would visit nightly, leading up to Christmas. A local resident told me that there were very few lights over the past few years.
