Exploring Sill's Bend, Warringal Parklands, Banyule
\These pix were taken at Sill's Bend, in the Warringal Parklands, Banyule, on October 24, 2012, 15 km east of central Melbourne.
Nestled next to the Yarra River, this beautiful part of Heidelberg parklands was named after small farmer Mark Sill who used it for orchards in the 19th century. A few remnant fruit trees remain.
My exploration was a 3 m hike, starting at the Old Shire Offices off Beverley Rd, then along the Main Yarra Trail and on to the circuit track around the Bend.
Nearby is the Warringal Swamp - a small billabong is passed near the Bend.
