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.

You've got the Yarra River to walk along. There's land marks for learning about the area, and the shops are just great. Great service and quirky things.

This area can be easily reached by bus from Lonsdale Street, taking about 50 mins. The vegetation is true Australiana beside the Yarra River & many cafes are a short walk. A great alternative to the city.
