This is a well frequented walk along the banks of the Yarra. Good for all ages as it is a flat easy to access walk with car parks dotted alongside. Lots of people bring their dogs for a walk here. You can see ducks and other birds on the river

Having lunch by the river which is part of the larger Warrandyte State Park is absolutely beautiful. Warrandyte town and the river is a lot more accessible then the state park and has lots more to do and more places to eat too. But the state park has its advantages too but it's for the more adventurous and you will... More

This is "walking trail" is at the eastern end of the Warrandyte State Park and follows the Yarra River and then takes a reasonable climb up to the top of Mount Lofty providing beautiful panoramic views of the Yarra Valley & the river below. You should allow an hour for the round trip back to the carpark (which is at... More

Very close to Melbourne and a perfect place to spend a saturday or sunday. Gives you a chance to get close to nature with many spots available to unpack your picnic basket and just relax.

We caught the 906 bus from the city to Warrandyte bridge and then walked into the state park via Tills drive to Black Flat. Our return hike was just over 12km much of it along the very edge of the Yarra river. We walked up to Blue Tongue Flat and back. Beautiful, peaceful as largely on our own on a... More

Went walking this morning in Warrandyte State Park. Walked the Mt Lofty Trail at the eastern end of the Park. Very pleasant walk along the banks of the Yarra River; then a steep climb to the top of the hill with views of Mt Dandenong to the south and Yarra Ranges to the east. The 4.6 km walk took 2... More

Warrandyte and surrounds is a great place to access the Yarra river for a paddle. Here the river takes a very winding path through beautiful bush land - much of it State Park. There are three formally built launching places that we have used; Mt Lofty car park, Jumping Creek Car Park and Pound Bend. Parts of the journey can... More

On the outskirts of Melbourne, Warrandyte State Park comprises several parks. We visited Pound Bend reserve as it had disabled toilets. There was ample parking during the weekday we visited though I can imagine how busy this place could get on weekends. The Yarra river surprised me. I thought it would be just a stream but it's much wider than... More

Walking from the Wittons Reserve in Wonga Park, the Warrandyte Park extends along the banks of the Yarra River until you reach the Bend of Islands and the Heritage Country Club at Chirnside Park. The carpark at Wittons is reasonably large, with sufficient parking for 20 or more vehicles. A word of caution however, there are no public toilets either... More
