Overview

The Warrandyte State Park is the closest state park to Melbourne. It is a haven for picnickers, bushwalkers, canoeists, birdwatchers and those who enjoy peace and solitude. The landscape is dominated by the Yarra River as it winds through the Warrandyte Gorge. The hills around Warrandyte have a distinctive bluish-green hue, typical of the Red Box foliage common in the area. The park consists of a number of different sections, each with its own attractions. Jumping creek has a large recreational area with wood barbeques, picnic tables, toilets and information shelter. Some wood is provided but it is advisable to bring your own. There is also a canoe launch at this reserve. Pound Bend is another picnic area with tables, toilets, great views and a good chance of seeing Koalas in the trees. There are also a number of easy walks for visitors throughout the park. The park is 24km north-east of Melbourne. Access is mainly via sealed roads; Warrandyte Road, Research-Warrandyte Road and Ringwood-Warrandyte Road. Mountain bikes are permitted within the park but must remain on management vehicle only tracks.

Hike around the bend for a chance to see a lot of kangaroos. The hike is easy and pleasant. You will come to some meadows where the kangaroos feed. See my pictures.

Warrandyte State park is a lovely environment close to the city for a day trip, picnic and some great walks. The Yarra river winds its way through this park, making it incredibly scenic and relaxing. Paths are well defined and in good condition.

Situated along the Yarra River, the park offers serene walking trails where you are 95% sure of seeing kangaroos, you may glimpse a hairy nose wombat and a cheeky echidna. A relic from the mining days is the tunnel that passes under the road, spilling...More
