On Tuesday March 30 2010 I went over to the North Warrandyte district, 25 km east of Melbourne town. I explored an interesting 2 km (return) track along the north bank of the Yarra, starting at a small car park off the unsealed Boulevard.
This took me down to the Stony Creek Bushland Reserve, and the track passed the confluence of the creek with the Yarra.
This bank of the Yarra is popular for swimming in the warmer months - I followed the track to its end at the foot of the high cliffs near the end of Weeroona Way.
The Playground is on Weeroona Way.
This track is directly opposite the Pound Bend section of the Warrandyte State Park, but is not shown in Melways or other public maps.
It offered good views of the Yarra, passing through remnant bushland, a habitat for many species of birds and animals.
