Exploring the Warrandyte Common

The Warrandyte Common is a large bushland nature reserve in the southern section of the Warrandyte State Park, 25 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

It is home to a wide variety of fauna and flora, and mobs of Eastern Grey Kangaroos inhabit the cleared private land adjacent to the western perimeter.

Several well-signposted walking tracks pass through the Reserve, once a logging region.

Horseriding is popular on designated trails.

The Reserve is reached from the Ringwood-Warrandyte Rd, then along Johanson's Rd, then into Haslop's Lane. A small car park off Haslop's Lane is a starting point for the gated walking tracks.

I visited the Reserve on May 26, 2010, on a 3 km hike, following the Central Track, the Bridle Track, the Firebreak Track, South Track, North Track, and Haslop's Link Track.

My Photos show the scenery, environment, fauna and flora encountered on my excursion.
