Mt Lofty and Yarra River - Warrandyte State Park


On January 26, 2009, I completed a pleasant 3 km circuit walk in the Mt Lofty section of the Warrandyte State Park, 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

My route started at the canoe launching ramp on the Yarra River, on Lower Homestead Rd, in the municipality of Wonga Park.

From there, I followed the somewhat overgrown foot-track next to the Yarra, along a boardwalk, passing the lookout, and then back to to the Yarra, at Water Point.

I then did the steep climb to the Summit, along Stephen Track, passing the information board, then a descent to Lower Homstead Rd and back to the car park.

There are picnic tables at the Summit and the Water Point.

This walk is one of the best in the Park, with superb views in all directions from the Summit, looking across the Yarra gorges to the Yarra Ranges, the Dandenong Ranges, and the Kinglake Ranges.

New signposts have recently been built near the Summit.

Mt Lofty overlooks the adjacent large Heritage Golf and Country Club and the Wetlands.
