Armstrong Creek – Geelong’s Best Kept Secret!

Published Tue 21 Jun 2016

Are you searching for a reason to get out of the house, enjoy some fresh air, get some exercise or are you searching for an adventure for the kids? Then you need to discover Armstrong Creek at Warralily!

Armstrong Creek – Geelong’s Best Kept Secret! This fully rejuvenated, revegetated and landscaped wetland system that meanders through the Warralily Estate, is a wonder of not just modern engineering and planning, but of the tireless pursuit to construct a world class wetland system.
Armstrong Creek was originally a very important Aboriginal waterway & meeting place, unfortunately over time the section between Barwon Heads Road & Horseshoe Bend Roads was eroded and degraded due to years of agriculture.
Armstrong Creek serves several very important functions:
  • As a flood mitigation mechanism  to convey water away from the suburb of Armstrong Creek out to Lake Connewarre
  • To greatly increase the number and diversity of plants and wildlife inhabiting the system and surrounds
  • Being a key plank in the 30km of hike & bike paths that will meander throughout Warralily
With an estimated cost of $25million, Armstrong Creek is a sight to behold and clearly has captured the eye of the local bird life with 43 different species now inhabiting the waterways from our family of Black Swans, Red Rumped Parrot’s, Goshawks & Cockatoos to name just a few.
With constructed and future parks, exercise stations and play grounds strategically placed along the length of the linear creek system there are hours that could be spent exercising, playing, exploring or just sitting on one of the many seating area’s and taking in the magnificent outlook.
From personal experience, having taught my daughter to ride her bike along the paths and seen the look of wonder and excitement on her and her sisters face as they ran ahead to explore the next section of the creek, I was struck by the thought that Armstrong Creek once again, as it was in the past, is going to be a very important part of the local residents lives for a number of years to come.
