Canadian Creek Walk/Ride
Olympic Avenue, Mount Clear to Ebden Street, Ballarat. 6.9km walk or 9.4km ride
The Canadian Creek Walk/Ride has different routes for walkers and riders from Olympic Avenue to Peel Street South in Ballarat. The riders continue along Geelong Road to Midvale Shopping Centre, and then turn westwards on Whitehorse Road to the bridge over the Yarrowee River which is followed into Ballarat CBD past the Redan Wetlands and the former Sunnyside Woollen Mill.
Walkera go eastwards on Olympic Avenue to the Canadian Creek, and then take a shared walk and bike track downstream along the creek to Ballarat CBD.
Walkers and riders join again at the bridge over Canadian Creek at Peel Street South and proceed for 800 metres past many Ballarat central shops to the picturesque Eastern Oval at Ebden Street.
From here there is a 700 metre link to Ballarat Rail Station which has some 25 services each week day to Melbourne, and almost as many at weekends.
