Lenister Farm Wetlands, Lower Eltham

Lenister Farm Wetlands is a large area of woodland, in the outer suburb of Lower Eltham, about 20 km NE of the Melbourne CBD.

Nearby is Lower Eltham Park and the Miniature Railway.

I visited this interesting area on Friday afternoon July 9, 2010, on a 4 km hike. I started at the car park at Westerfold Park, then along the lower Main Yarra Trail to the suspension bridge, over the bridge, then to Lenister Farm Wetlands.

At the confluence of the Yarra River and Diamond Creek, the Wetlands contains a birdhide, interpretative signage, rockeries, and a viewing platform on the river, with gravel pathways.
Sadly, the Wetland was completely dry, due to the extended drought, but there were good views of the Yarra.

My return was along the Main Yarra Trail, through the Candlebark Conservation Area forest, back to Westerfold Park, with a detour along the boardwalk near Petty's Orchard.
