Exploring the Currawong Bush Park, Warrandyte




The Currawong Bush Park is a 60 hectare area of preserved bushland, 25 km east of Melbourne, in the outer east suburb of Warrandyte.

It is reaached from Reynold's Rd, near the end of Springvale Rd.

It is adjacent to the Mullum Mullum Creek, and a large section of the park was originally a cattle farm until the 1960s.
Prior to Western settlement in the 1830s, the area was inhabited by the Wurrundunji Aboriginal peoples.

It includes a Wildlife Sanctuary, Aboriginal artefacts, a nice Lagoon, a Stockyard, and walking tracks.

I visited the Park on September 19 2008, on a 3 km circuit, which included the scenic Killjoy Track.

Many colorful birds were seen. Unfortunately, the Sanctuary compound had been closed down.
