A Visit to the Kangaroo Paddock.Pound Bend, Warrandyte SP

Kangaroo Paddock

Yarra at junction with Stony Creek

Site of former orchard, Kangaroo Paddock
On Tuesday May 11, 2010, I visted the Pound Bend Section of the Warrandyte State Park, 20 km east of Melbourne town.

My 4 km return hike took me along the Pound Bend Trail, adjacent to the Yarra, reaching the Kangaroo Paddock, next to the Parks Victoria depot.

This Paddock was formerly an orchard, prior to its acquisition by the Victorian Government in 1972 - some of the original fruit trees are present, now wild, at the nothern end of the Paddock.

There were two mobs of Eastern Grey Kangaroos in their Paddock - it is believed that up to 80 kangaroos inhabit this section of the Park.

    Thanks for the blog - went on this walk with 3 kids this afternoon and had a great time. No koalas spotted but the captive roos were a hit!
