We decided to check out the O'Shannessy's water duct trail when visiting Warburton. It was 2kms long, but when the trail soon narrowed through people property, we wondered how any one could pass or was it a one way trail?

Pretty and easy walk through the national park. We saw Rosella's and heard Lyrebirds, Kookaburras and other birds. Tips to make your walk more memorable and enjoyable, make sure you go to the loo before you start your walk because we didn't see any public toilets. Take some water too.

A great place to enjoy a family bike ride or walk. Fairly flat, well made trail. For good access, views and picnic spot drive to car park at the end of Dee Road in Millgrove- before you get to warburton.

This is a great walking trail. I particularly love the trail from Yuonga rd to Dee rd.. Around 6 Kms of flat land, great for biking and walking

The O'shannassy Trail can be walked or ridden on bike. From Yuonga Rd you can walk eastwards to Cement Creek and return [14kms] or walk west wards to Dee Road and return [ 12.5kms]. Lovely tree ferns and tall mountain ash line the route. At times you are accompanied by the call of the lyre-bird , crimson rosellas dash passed... More

The path leads along the old aqueduct that brought water to Yarra Junction at a time when it exported more wood and logs than anywhere in the world except Seattle. Now the canal is dry but the path beside leads through eucalyptus forest with views down to the valley below. Birdsong, the odd raptor and wild flowers make for a... More

If you're searching for a walking or cycling track that's out of the way and has great scenery & great views, this is it. You can walk for over an hour without meeting another sole. The track can be a little unkept, in fact at times there was barely a track at all. However for me this added to the... More
