Yarrabridge Bushland Reserve, Woori Yallock



The Yarrabridge Bushland Reserve is a preserved and protected area about 60 km east of Melbourne, in the Woori Yallock District, between the towns of Woori Yallock and Healesville, reached from the Woori Yallock-Healesville Rd, on public land adjacent to the Yarra River.

There is an interesting 3 km circuit walking track in the Reserve, passing through a mix of Ti Tree, gum trees and open grasslands, next to the river.

The Reserve lies to the north of the recently rebuilt Yarrabridge - the old bridge is still there, now a historical attraction.

The land adjacent to the Reserve was once part of the Dairy pastoral run opened up in the 1840s.

On the opposite side of the Bridge is another gated track, accessed from the car park. This follows the river past farms for about 1 km, ending at a pleasant picnic spot, view point, and a small beach.

I visited the Reserve, completing the circuit and river tracks, on Wednesday afternoon May 13, 2009.
