Clarkes Road, Franklinford VIC 3461

Features

An attractive Streamside Reserve located within a hairpin bend of the Jim Crow Creek in Franklinford, Victoria.

A large clearing sits within the creek's bend which offers plenty of room for parking, camping and picnic blankets. During the warmer months when water levels are low, this part of the creek is shallow as it flows over rocks and among reeds, making it a great paddling spot for children.

Just a little further back along Clarke's Road, before you turn in towards the clearing, if you head down to the creek from the roadside you will find another great spot down at the water. The creek streams over bedrock here creating beautiful rock pools when water levels are low.

A fascinating old wooden bridge sits to the right of the clearing within the Franklinford Streamside Reserve. Access to the bridge is prohibited and a private driveway begins here - do not enter.

There are no toilets, picnic tables or rubbish bins present at the Franklinford Streamside Reserve.
