Winter hike to Tank Hill Summit, Warrandyute State Park.

On Sunday afternoon July 18, 2010, a cold and bleak mid-winter day, I went over to the Warrandyte State Park, 20 km east of central Melhourne.

From the Lookout Point over the Yarra at the entrance to Pound Bend Reserve, I proceeded along gated Tank Track, ascending Tank Hill to the summit.

The concrete tank is near the summit, for fire management support, with a radio water level signalling system.

There are good views from the Summit to the south across the Yarra to Warrandyte.

I then descended to the end of Tank Track, crossing Pound Bend Rd, near the Parks Victoria depot.

From there, I followed the walking track past the YHA Memorial, and then in to Kangaroo Paddock.

Many kangas were grazing in their paddock, which is the site of a former orchard.

I then proceeded along the Pound Bend river track, reaching the Pound Bend Reserve, and up the hill back to the car.

Many winter fungi had appeared, of diverse colors, shapes, and sizes!

This was about 4 km total.
