Pound bend is bordered by a bend in the Yarra River and was a meeting place for the Wurundjeri peoples, there are walks that are conducted by elders of the tribe on occasion but they are not a...

We started at the info board next to the carpark, and listened to the recordings about the first gold findings in Victoria. Walked the Gold Heritage Walk and explored the entrance to an old mine. Some of the info boards have been damaged so it's worth picking up a copy of the map from the local Historical Society before heading... More

At the junction of Yarra Rd and Whipstick Gully Rd you find the Warrandyte Historical Society building where there is a small museum inside. Open 1-4pm on Sat & Sun. You can grab a map which will help you track some mines down on the "Gold Walk".... More

This is one of the closest areas to Melbourne City where you get a real feel for the bush. The Yarra River still looks like a wild bush river and there is plenty of wildlife to be seen, from kangaroos and koalas to echidnas and birds. Warrandyte Township is also becoming a bit of a Foodies Hub with plenty of... More

You are assured of seeing Kangaroos when you visit the Warrandyte State park, particularly at Pound Bend. Cockatoos, parrots and other birdlife is abundant. Koala spotting is an enjoyable way of spending your time at Pound Bend. Highly Recommend.

So peaceful down here. You can walk by the rive, feed the ducks, have a picnic or enjoy a coffee. Great little spot.
