Warburton River Walk in Winter!



On Saturday June 26, 2010, I ventured out to Warburton, some 65 km east of Melbourne.

It was a bitterly cold and rainy day!

My hike started at the main bridge over the Yarra at the eastern end of the town, and I followed the Warburton River Walk to the west.

This took me along the south bank, then across the Redwood Bridge, along the north bank, and across the Brisbane Bridge.

I returned along the south bank, past the football ground (Warburton was 12 goals in front), then back to the car, a total distance of about 4 km.

The Yarra was a raging torrent, due to sustained heavy rain in the catchment region, and was very close to bursting its banks.

Please see all of the Photos of my visit!
