Storywalk | Goldfields Library Corporation

Goldfields Libraries StoryWalks  child at Castlemaine Storywalk

StoryWalks are a fun and educational activity that places a children’s story (literally a book taken apart!) along a popular walking route in the community. They are a physical activity and a literary experience in one.

Being active is good for our bodies, and reading is good for our brains. The combination of both is a great all-round activity for our health and wellbeing!

Goldfields Libraries regularly host StoryWalks across the region. We currently have StoryWalks in:

  • Castlemaine – Castlemaine Train Station. West side along Barkers Creek Trail (Gingell St). Download map.
  • Heathcote – Heathcote Playspace, 126 HIgh Street. Download map.
  • Kangaroo Flat - Rotary Gateway Park, High Street
  • Kyneton – Shared path next to Kyneton Primary School and Kindergarten. Between Victoria and Edgecombe Streets. Download map.
  • Wedderburn - Nardoo Walking Track, Chapel Street


Partnership with Healthy Loddon Campaspe

We’ve partnered up with Healthy Loddon Campaspe for our StoryWalks in Castlemaine, Heathcote, Kyneton and Wedderburn. These StoryWalk® books will be updated each season, so we encourage you to walk, scoot or ride your local StoryWalk® often to see what’s changed – or venture to another town to check out theirs!

Thank you to Nacho Station for also being involved in this StoryWalk® project.


Healthy Loddon Campaspe and Goldfields Library Corporation acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land and waterways of our region. We recognise their living cultures and ongoing connection to Country and pay respect to their Elders past and present.

The StoryWalk® project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk is a registered service mark owned by Ms Ferguson.
