Ascent ot Mt Lofty, Warrandyte State Park




On Sunday January 24 2009 I went across to the Warrandyte State Park, 20 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

From the canoe launching ramp at the end of Lower Homestead Rd I went along the walking track next to the Yarra, passing the Observation Platform, through bushland, then on to the water point athe foot of Mt Lofty.

From there, I climbed the fire management track to the summit, where there is a picnic table and seats.

I met some other hikers at the summit, and we exchanged ideas and thoughts about bushwalking.

Then, down Stephen's Track, past the Information Board, joining Lower Homestead Rd and back to the car park.

The views from the summit are spectacular, looking across the Yarra Valley towards Mts St Leonard and Monda, and to the Dandenong Ranges.

A mob of Eastern Grey Kangaroos were on the hill opposite the river, part of the Country Club Golf Resort.

This was a 3 km hike on a rather hot day!

See all of the Photos of my visit!
