Wittons Reserve and River Trail, Warrandyte State Park

Witton's Reserve and car park is at the end of Reserve Rd, Wonga Park, in the Warrandyte State Park, about 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

It is situated on the banks of the Yarra River, at the canoe launching ramp.

Nice beaches are excellent for swimming and paddling, and when the level is low, rocks and rapids are exposed.

A walking trail follows the river to the north, crossing Brushy Creek and continuing to Mt Lofty.

There are beautiful views of the river from this trail, and picnic tables and seats are in a delightful shady setting about 1 km from the start.

There is a nice beach near the picnic area, suitable for swimming, paddling, and exploring the exposed river rocks.

I hiked this trail as far as the picnic area on January 29, 2009. This was a frightfully hot day, with temperature on the trail hovering around 48 degrees!

There were many visitors, and their dogs, enjoying the coolness of the river.

If you are so inclined, hire or take a canoe or kayak on the river, a pleasant experience.
