Yarrabridge Reserve, Woori Yallock, Victoria

The Yarrabridge Reserve is a preserved and protected area about 60 km east of Melbourne, between the towns of Woori Yallock and Healesville, on public land adjacent to the Yarra River.

There is an interesting 3 km circuit walking track in the Reserve, passing through a mix of Ti Tree, gum trees and open grasslands.

The Reserve lies to the north of the recently rebuilt Yarrabridge - the old bridge is still there, now a historical attraction.

The land adjacent to the Reserve was once part of the Dairy pastoral run opened up in the 1840s.
There are very good views of the Yarra, and the mountains of the Donna Buang Massif, dominated by Ben Cairn at 1045m.

I explored this pleasant reserve on January 26, 2008, which is managed by the Shire of Yarra Ranges.
