Sawpit Creek - Healesville

These pictures were taken on April 15 2011, in the Healesville distrct, 65 km east of Melbourne.

They show the scenery and environment in the Maroondah Reservoir catchment area, on a 4 km hike along Management Road 17, starting at the Donnelley's Weir Rd, and continuing towards Mt Monda, adjacent to Sawpit Creek.

My hike included an exploration of the Echo Tunnel area, and inspections of the Maroondah Aqueduct, the historical Sawpit Creek Weir, and the site of the former picnic ground.

I have included some images looking across the Reservoir to Mt Monda and the Victorian Alps, taken from the nearby Sellover Lookout, and pictures of the Watt's River, at flood level.

See all of the Photos of my visit!
