Yarra River - Pound Bend Hike - Warrandyte State Park
On Wednesday November 4, 2009, I went over to the Warrandyte State Park, 15 km from the Melbourne CBD.
I did the 4 km (return) Pound Bend Track, starting at the Pound Bend Picnic Ground, and continuing on the relatively unknown extension track around the Kangaroo Paddock.
See all of the Photos of my visit, which shows views of the Yarra River, kangaroos, a galah, a nice fungus, a duck family, and the Picnic Ground.
Historical photos show the Picnic Ground as it looked in the years 1900 and 1940!
