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

Its a short trip from Melbourne city to Pound Bend in Warrandyte. This is a beautiful part of the Warrandyte State Park. 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

In Warrandyte State Park there are substantial remains from the gold mining era. 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

Warrandyte is a lovely location with many cafes and a good hotel for food and refreshment. However, the area has been affected (not as badly as elsewhere) by the February 2014 bushfires with several homes lost. Warrandyte is on the semi-rural outskirts of Melbourne. A visitor might find a round trip by public transport very pleasant; there is the regular... More
