Connecting Darebin Creek Trail to Childs Road, the Yan Yean Pipe Track is undergoing a serious makeover.
The state government have recently unveiled the first two stages of the Yan Yean Pipe Track’s impressive transformation, improving safety and connections for cyclists and pedestrians.
With an investment of $1 million, this 1.6-kilometre cycling and walking trail now boasts not only smooth, paved pathways but also welcoming seating areas, lush landscaping, and strategically placed safe road crossings.

Minister for the Environment Ingrid Stitt says that “delivering the first two stages of the Yan Yean Pipe Track will ensure Melbournians can experience a safer and easier connection from the Darebin Creek Trail to Childs Road.”
As the Yan Yean Pipe Track undergoes its full five-stage makeover, locals will soon have the opportunity to traverse a sprawling 3.75-kilometer expanse of trail connecting not only the hearts of the community but also popular shopping precincts and local schools.
Whittlesea City Council is spearheading this ambitious project, collaborating closely with local residents to ensure that the Yan Yean Pipe Track fulfills every aspect of the community’s needs.
This project is part of the larger $9.8 million investment from the Labor Government, known as the Northern Metropolitan Trails Program, aimed at enhancing cycling and walking trails throughout Melbourne’s north.
