The gate at Normanton Pk cannot be entered (it’s private), but Winchester Rd can be reached by following the fence, on the right of the gate (coming from KentRidge Pk and looking at the gate), at the beginning, no path is visible, just follow the fence, running on the lawn, once you enter the jungle, a path slowly appears, clearly it is not maintained, and be careful running on it, it’s full of branches, roots,..., some parts cannot even be run since you have to bend down in order to pass under some branches, after a while, you’ll exit in a clearing, the pat does not dissapear at once, but it deviates from the fence, becoming less and less visible, until dissapearing in the middle of the grass, Winchester Rd is visible from there, just above.
