Graceburn Weir and Aqueduct
The Graceburn Weir and Aqueduct were built in 1892, and are part of Melbourne's water catchment and supply network.
They are located east of Healesville, 80 km east of Melbourne.
Walkers are permitted to use the management track, 3 km return, which starts at the main gate at the Maroondah Highway and continues to the Weir.
The Government proposes to close public access to the Weir, to minimise contamination by visitors, and to set up a new Track in the area.
I did the Walk on December 11, 2006.
