Exploring John's Hill Reserve - Kallista

These pictures were taken on Thursday March 31, 2011 on my annual visit to the John's Hill Reserve, Kallista..

It's located on a ridge extending to the south-east from the main Dandenong Ranges massif in the Kallista district, 45 km east of Melbourne.

It is reached from Grantulla Rd, then along Ridge Rd to the car park.

The lookout on the summit offers magnificent panoramic views to the distant Yarra Ranges National Park, the Kinglake National Park, Mt St. Leonard, the Dandenong Ranges National Park, the Cardinia Reservoir, the Silvan Reservoir, nearby farmlands, Port Phillip Bay and Westernport Bay.

A Trig Point is located at the summit, 419 m, and an information board provides useful information about the history of the region.

The walk around the Reserve is about 1 km.
