Get back on your bike

There is nothing like getting outside, enjoying fresh air, and getting to your destination without the traffic – not to mention the associated health and environmental benefits.

Upcoming workshops

If you are getting back on your bike in 2021, join us for our series of bicycle skills workshops and courses throughout February, March and April.

From repairing a puncture, to riding independently as a young person, or having more confidence on urban roads, there’s something for all ages and abilities.

All our workshops and courses are educational, practical and fun – so bring your bike and get ready to ride!

Remember, when riding or walking on a shared path, be considerate of other path users to keep our shared paths safe and enjoyable for everyone.

Interim changes to Freeway Golf Course

Works to build a section of the new Yarra East Main Sewer to meet the major construction requirements for the Victorian Government’s North East Link Project (NELP) have started.

To build the new sewer, NELP is using the fairway of the first hole at Freeway Golf Course (FGC) to build a trench and mini-tunnel boring machine retrieval shaft over the sewer line.

FGC will remain open for use as an 18-hole course throughout these works, with some interim changes to the course layout. These changes include using the spare par-4 hole as a substitute while the first hole is being occupied, and reversing the course layout for flow and quality of play.

FGC is owned by Council and operated by Gammon Golf. Together, we are carefully managing these changes to maintain a high quality playing experience for all users throughout these works. An updated course map and scorecards are now available from the FGC Pro Shop.

Pro Shop services, lessons and cafe facilities will continue to operate as usual, with these expected to be completed by November 2021.

For more information about the interim course layout, visit the Pro Shop or call 9859 9000
