The newly developed ninja warrior course off The Boulevarde is perfect for those seeking action, and a beautiful covered lookout deck is perfect for relaxing and gentle exercise.

With many tranquil walking tracks around the park, don’t miss the Hill Top Circuit or the Ruffey Creek Circuit. Or take the Ruffey Trail, there is a large sign marking the beginning at The Boulevarde, to Finns Reserve where it joins the Main Yarra Trail.
