You Yangs Regional Park - Branding Yard Track

Branding Yard Track is a 5.5 km signposted circuit trail in the You Yangs Regional Park, 55 km SW of Melbourne.

The Track is one of the four major walking trails in the Park, and starts at the turntable car park.

It descends steeply from the car park, then follows woodland and scrub around the eastern flanks of Flinders Peak and the North Range.

It passes several dams, but these were totally dry during my visit.

The Geoglyph Aboriginal feature is passed - this was constructed in 2006 to commemorate the Commonwealth Games, and consists of formations of large stones arranged in the shape of a huge bird. To appreciate this feature, it should be viewed from the top of the cliff face, which is a separate walk.

There are good views from the track of the rock formations on the eastern side of the Range.

There are spectacular panoramas to the east and south from the top section of the track, to Corio Bay, Portarlington, the Werribee Plains, and Avalon Airport.

My visit was on January 6, 2009, a hot day!
