The Warrandyte Common in late Winter
The Warrandyte Common is a large bushland nature reserve in the southern section of the Warrandyte State Park, 25 km east of the Melbourne CBD.
It is home to a wide variety of fauna and flora, and mobs of Eastern Grey Kangaroos inhabit the cleared private land adjacent to the western perimeter.
Several well-signposted walking tracks pass through the Reserve, once a logging region.
Horseriding is popular on designated trails.
The Reserve is reached from the Ringwood-Warrandyte Rd, then along Johanson's Rd, then into Haslop's Lane. A small car park off Haslop's Lane is a starting point for the gated walking tracks.
I visited the Reserve on August 15 2012, on a 4 km hike, following the Central Track, the Bridle Track, the Firebreak Track, South Track, North Track, and Haslop's Link Track.
