Blue Tongue Bend in Spring, Warrandyte State Park

Blue Tongue Bend is a scenic location on the Yarra River, in the Warrandyte State park, 20 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

It is reached by a walking track, 4 km return, from the Jumping Creek Reserve car park.

The track winds its way next along the river gorge, with some steep pinches on the cliff top section.

The views of the river and rapids are excellent.

There are several places where the track is very close to the river, and at the Bend itself the river is quite wide and deep, with fish, mainly carp, coming to the surface and plopping down again!

This track is one of the best in the Park and takes about one hour to complete - longer if there are distractions caused by photo shoots, paddling, swimming, or fish spotting!

I visited the Bend on October 9, 2008.
