The Yarra Wetlands Walking Trail, Chirnside Park

The Yarra Wetlands Trail is an interesting 4 km (return) public gravel-surface walking track intersecting the Heritage Golf and Country Club grounds, Chirnside Park, 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

It is reached from a stile and gate at the Lower Homestead Rd canoe launching ramp, and follows the Yarra River through bushland, passing the large Wetlands Lake, the habitat of many water birds.

The Lake is one of several which were constructed to reduce the effects of seasonal flooding by the Yarra on the golf courses and its surrounds.

The section of the Club, known as the Henley Golf Course, north of the river, is in the Nullumbik Shire. The southern section includes a practice range and the St John Golf Course. and is in the Yarra Ranges Shire.

A waste water treatment facility is located at the southern boundary of the Club grounds.

The vast extent of the Club grounds can best be appreciated by climbing nearby Mt Lofty, in the Warrandyte State Park.

I visited the Wetlands Trail on October 13, 2008.
