Exploring Burkes's Lookout, Mt Dandenong

On Friday March 27 2009 I went up to the Mt Dandenong summit region.

Leaving the car at the small car park off Ridge Rd, near the Kyeema aircrash memorial, I walked along Kyeema Track to the superb open rocky viewpoint known as Burke's Lookout. This is adjacent to the ABV2, HSV7, and Channel Ten TV towers.

From there, I continued to the Mt Corhanwarrabul Picnic area, then along Eyre Rd and into the scenic Singleton Bushland Reserve. A walking track in the Reserve offers good views to the east through a cleared area of forest.

Then, back to the car, after a journey of about 3 km.

The panoramas from Burke's Lookout across Melbourne are excellent - the city skyline, Port Phillip Bay and the You Yangs further to the west were visible. To the north, the Macedon and Kinglake Ranges are prominent, but there was some haze.

A new memorial cairn and information board have recently been constructed near the site of the Kyeema aircrash disaster of October 1938.
