There are several Walking Trails in the Mont Albert/Mont Albert
Houses and History Trail
is a Heritage Trail, about 5 km, developed by Whitehorse Council!
This starts and ends at the Mont Albert
single storey railway station,
constructed in 1911, and head east along Churchill Street.
Marvel at the beautiful Edwardian streetscape before
turning right into Elgar Road and then right again at
Serpentine Street (subdivided in 1956).
Further on, turn left into Black Street and then take care
when crossing Mont Albert Road to enter St John’s
Avenue. When you reach Windsor Avenue, veer right a
short distance through the lovely little park to St Georges
Head right and then left at Mont Albert Road, past the
former St George’s Anglican Church.
As you reach Leopold Crescent, turn left and then a sharp
left at Windsor Crescent. Wonderful Pin Oak trees line the
street. A sweeping right bend leads into Balmoral
Crescent before another right turn is needed at Albany
When the area was subdivided in 1900 many of the streets
here were named after members and residences of the
British royal family.
Veer right into Windsor Crescent, past the old lampposts,
and when you reach the playground at Lorne Parade, turn
left. This will lead you back to Mont Albert Road and
further right is Hamilton Street.
Gawler Chain - Mont Albert North
is a shared Trail of about 2 km, which follows part of the valley of the original course of a tributory (now mainly in barrel
drains). of Bushy Creek. It starts near the Koonung Secondary College, and winds its way through several small parks and picnic
grounds. It passes areas of preserved bushland, and the adjacent houses represent a broad spectrum of building styles
and architecture since the early 1930s. Scouts and Guides Halls are passed.
Trail - Mont Albert North
This shared Trail runs around Elgar Park and through the Koonung
Creek Linear Park. A scenic wetland is a key feature of the Trail.
