Warburton - the scenic Yarra River Trail





On Sunday afternoon July 5, 2009, I visited Warburton, about 80 km east of Melbourne, in the mountains.

My target was the Yarra River Trail, about 6 km total, taking about 90 mins to complete, or two hours with stops for refreshments and photos!

I completed all of the Trail, starting at the eastern access point opposite the camping ground on the Wood's Point Rd, where there is an information board with a colored map and sign describing the Trail and access points.

The album shows many features and attractions along the Trail, including several bridges, rushing water, rapids, the Brisbane Creek, the Lookout, lots of ducks, hounds, and people!

My route was along the northern bank - an option for the return is to follow the alternative track on the southern bank.

The Trail can be undertaken as a complete walk, or as smaller step-on, step-off segments.

Signs have been placed along the Trail - becoming lost would be almost impossible!
