Pound Bend Rocks - Warrandyte State Park

Satellite Image

The Pound Bend Rocks is an unusual and interesting rocky outcrop in the Yarra River, Warrandyte State Park, 25 km NE of Melbourne.

The foot track starts at Norman Reserve, opposite the Pound Bend diversion tunnel, passing through bushland until it reaches the Rocks Formation some 2 km away.

The Pound Bend loop of the Yarra was once almost completely drained, in the 1850s, when the 300m diversion tunnel was built, and at that time was a frenzy of gold-miners with picks and shovels.

When the gold ran out, the river was allowed to flow again.

I visited the Rocks on April, 15, 2007.
