Exploring Warrandyte Village in late winter

Historical Society Museum

Monument at site of State Crushing Battery,
operated 1898 to 1925


State School No.12, built 1856
On Monday afternoon August 30, 2010, I went over to Warrandyte.

Warrandyte was founded as a Victorian town located in the once gold-rich rolling hills east of Melbourne, Victoria, and is now on the north-eastern boundary of suburban Melbourne.

The Yarra River is adjacent to the main street - Yarra St.

Gold was first discovered in the town in 1851 and together with Victorian towns like Bendigo and Ballarat, led the way in gold discoveries during the Victorian gold rush.

Today Warrandyte retains much of its past in its surviving buildings of the Colonial period.

My exploration was a 2 km circuit walk, starting an Yarra St.
