Maroondah Reservoir Park - Healesville
The Maroondah Reservoir Park, Healesville, 60 km east of Melbourne, has been reopened, after several months, due to the disastrous fires which ravaged the area in February 2009.
The main Walking tracks from the picnic area at the base of the Reservoir have now been cleared of fire debris and footbridges repaired.
I visited the Park on Thursday November 5, 2009, with a 3 km (return) hike up to the scenic Reservoir Lookout along the Maroondah Forest Walking Track.
The reservoir was full, after recent heavy rains in the catchment feeders, and there were excellent views to the peaks of Mt Juliet and the Lake Mountain area.
Water was pouring over the spillway, into Myers Creek, which was a fast-flowing torrent!
