Black Flat Track - Warrandyte State Park
On Thursday afternoon November 25, 2009, I went over to the Warrandyte State Park, 20 km east of the Melbourne CBD, and did the 4 km (return) Black Flat Track.
It was a very hot, humid and overcast day.
From the Jumping Creek Reserve car-park, my hike took me along the cliff top, with good views down to the Yarra, far below.
Reaching the Black Flat Track junction, I returned to the car park.
An immense thunderstorm, heavy rain, and lightning had reached the Warrandyte region, and I was drenched by the time I got back to the car!
See all of the Photos of my visit!
On a sunny day, this is a very picturesque locality, with the rapids and ducks; large Redfins often rise out of the river!
