Description

Sweetwater Creek is a natural habitat corridor from Frankston Nature Conservation Reserve to Port Phillip Bay. Close to the mouth of the creek lies Sweetwater Creek Nature Reserve, a peaceful oasis tucked in amongst nearby houses.

Walk along the picturesque walking paths and boardwalks, and enjoy views of the creek, waterfalls and bushland. Lookouts, bridges and seats provide resting points where you can stop, look and listen for birdlife and frogs. “The Granites” is a particularly beautiful spot where the creek has carved out its path around large rocky outcrops and boulders.

Enter at the base of Olivers Hill from Liddesdale Avenue and you can extend your walk beyond the northern end of the reserve by crossing Nepean Highway to join the Frankston Foreshore boardwalk.
