Yarra River and Wetlands, Chirnside Park

The Yarra Wetlands at Chirnside Park is an scenic area within the Heritage Heritage Golf and Country Club, adjoining the Yarra River, about 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

A well-maintained Nature Trail, 2 km return, follows the River from the Lower Homestead Rd canoe launching ramp, past the Wetlands, through interesting bushland.

explored this Trail on Saturday February 7, 2009, a day of record-breaking heat when the temperature reached 46.7 degrees in Melbourne. This was the highest temperature ever recorded in Melbourne. The shade temperature in the images was in excess of 48 degrees.

Sadly, this day has become known as Black Saturday, where catastrophic bushfires ravaged huge areas of Victoria with up to 200 people killed, and enormous losses of homes and infrastructure.
