Norman's Bushland Nature Reserve, Warrandtye SP




Norman's Bushland Reserve is a large area of preserved bushland on the north side of the Yarra River, Warrandyte State Park, 25 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

It is reached from the Warrandyte to Research Rd, and along Bradley's Lane, to a car park and picnic area opposite the Pound Bend Tunnel.

A 3 km (return) walking track follows the river easterly to a point near the main bridge, passing through bushland, with good views of the river.

About half way along, there is a viewpoint and seat.

The unsigned track is undulating, with some steep pinches, and walkers should watch out for wombats, which inhabit the slopes down to the water's edge!

This track is not shown in any maps, and is privately maintained by local residents.

I explored this track on Monday afternoon May 11, 2009, but no wombats appeared, having their afternoon sleeps!
