Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by The State of Victoria Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning in 2017 suggests that a desire-line (or 'pedestrian desire-line'): ‘…usually represents the preferred route and the shortest or most easily navigated route between an origin and destination. Desire-lines can often be seen as alternative shortcut tracks in places where constructed pathways take a circuitous route. They are almost always the most direct and the shortest route between two points.’
