Where to ride or walk
Our new 2023 TravelSmart map shows on-road bike lanes, off-road riding trails and safe bike-riding routes, as well as walking paths, public toilets and public transport information, including tram and train maps.
The best way to view this map is using a hard copy. However, you can also download a copy below. Please note this is a large file that may take a long time to load. For more mobile friendly maps, check out the 'useful resources' section below.
Updated in 2023
- New off-road routes
- New bike repair stations

We have multi-user paths for people of all ages and paces including pedestrians, wheelchair users, joggers, children on scooters or roller-skates, families with prams and dog walkers. Our off-road shared paths are conveniently marked on the Darebin TravelSmart Map.
St Georges Road bike counter
In partnership with the Darebin Bicycle User Group, we have installed a solar powered bike counter on the St Georges Road shared path. Sensors in the path detect when a bike passes and the counter shows how many people have ridden past that day, and for the year to date.
Over 500,000 bikes are counted on the path every year, and this number is growing. View the latest data.
Shimmy bike routes
Shimmy bike routes follow quiet back streets and are designated by signs and bike symbols, making it easy to shimmy your way through Darebin's back streets and avoid the main roads. We have a map of the new Great Western Shimmy route, as well as a map of our other Shimmy routes.
