Exploring the Yarra River - East Warburton



These pictures were taken on May 4, 2011.

They show the scenery and environment on a 2 km hike adjacent to the Yarra River, East Warburton, 80 km east of Melbourne, opposite the Big Pat's Creek Rd turnoff.

In 1910, a steam timber tramway commenced operating between Warburton and Big Pat's Creek, and a large Seasoning Works existed at the corner of Big Pat's Creek Rd and the Wood's Point Rd.

The tramway remained in use until 1973 - trackwork arond the site remained in place until 1980 when the rails were recovered and sold for scrap.

Now, the site is private property, used for grazing.

See all of the Photos of my visit.
