On top of Mt Lofty, Warrandyte SP



These photos were taken on Wednesday September 15, 2010, on a 3 km hike to the summit of Mt Lofty, Warrandyte State Park, 35 km east of central Melbourne.

The weather bad, with high winds and rain squalls, interspersed by period of sunshine!

At the Summit there are two Survey Markers, off the main management road.

Excellent views of the Yarra and Gorge, and panoramas across the Yarra Valley and Heritage Country Club golf courses to the Yarra and Dandenong Ranges.

Kangaroos were up there, wondering what I was doing on their land - you can see them, and a beautiful rainbow, in this album!

My adventure started and ended at the gate on Lower Homestead Rd, following Stephen Track.

I picnic table and seats are at the summit.

The Mt Lofty area was originally a large, cleared grazing property, added to the Park in 1997, following acquisition by the State Government. A few relics may be seen, such as parts of fence posts and rusting barbed wire.

See all of the Photos of my visit.
