Stane Brae, Warrandyte State Park





Stane Brae is a large section of the Warrandyte State Park, 25 km east of Melbourne.

It was originally a large grazing and farming property, prior to its purchase by the Victorian Government for incorporation into the Park. River frontages were also acquired.

The stables and outbuildings of the former homestead have been converted into a rest and picnic area, with basic free overnight accommodation facilities offered for walkers, Parks Victoria personnel, and canoeists.

Some of the original plantings remain, and extensive revegetation activities are continuing.

There are excellent views of the surrounding hills, the adjacent Yarra River, with rapids and a small beach, suitable for swimming, canoe launching/landing.

Access is by canoe or on foot, from Jumping Creek carpark. The walk is about 6 km return, following fire access tracks. Watch out for the mobs of Eastern Grey Kangaroos who inhabit this section of the Park!
