5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

Following the bends and flow of the Yarra, this park is a lovely diversion from all the surrounding suburbs.

“Wonderful Wazza.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

The Warrandyte State Park is HUGE. The Yarra runs through it in many places. There's a heap of wildlife to be spotted (look up), koalas, kangaroos, wombats, blue tongues and all sorts of birdlife. You can canoe down the river, walk the tracks, swim and check out one of the prettiest towns. There's lots of picnic and play areas. It is often used for movie and TV locations. The gums are breathtaking. On foggy mornings when the sun breaks through the trees, you can just stop and relax and take it all in. It is a serene and spectacular place, with a rich gold mining history. Be sure to check out the Pound Bend Tunnel.

“A quaint township”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

Warrandyte is a tranquil hilly and tree covered oasis built on the Yarra River. It is hard to believe that Warrandyte is a suburb of Melbourne. The shops and cafes are quaint. The locals are easy going and friendly. The river is awesome for walking, swimming, boating, picnicing or cycling. What a beautiful part of Victoria!
