Latest news from Cr Marks


We have recently launched 12 new walking circuits around Maroondah for the community to explore.

The new signed walking routes were designed to make it easier to navigate Maroondah on foot, and use our existing footpath network as well as other shared paths and trails.

Consultation undertaken for our Physical Activity Strategy highlighted that the community wanted low cost, easy exercise opportunities. While ticking these boxes, the walking routes are also a great way of getting to know your neighbourhood as they link to local landmarks and amenities including schools, shops and other community facilities.

The routes are of varied lengths and difficulty, to suit all fitness levels, and to make them easier to navigate we have installed signage, bollards and footpath decals.
