Warrandyte State Park - Pound Bend Hike



I visited the Pound Bend Section of the Warrandyte State Park, on Friday afternoon September 18, 2009, 15 km from the Melbourne CBD.

From the car park at the Pound Bend Reserve, I went along the Main Trail, then on the "unofficial" trail extension around the large Kangaroo Paddock. This Paddock, which is next to the eastern bend of the Yarra, is managed by Parks Victoria, and walkers are permitted to use it.

There are many Eastern Grey Kangaroos inhabiting the Paddock, some of whom had come out to be photographed!


There were good views of the Yarra and the cliffs on the opposite bank, with some ducks, a Kooka, a magpie, and other assorted creatures of the air!


All this was about 5 km.

  1. Hello, first time here! Love you pictures, especially of the kangaroo family with the joey popping it's head out to get its picture taken!
