Lenister Farm Wetland, Lower Eltham

Lenister Farm Wetland is a large area of woodland, in the outer suburb of Lower Eltham, about 20 km NE of the Melbourne CBD.

At the confluence of the Yarra River and Diamond Creek, it contains a birdhide, interpretative signage, and a viewing platform on the river, with gravel pathways.

Adjacent is a new, modern footbridge over the Yarra, leading to the Main Yarra Trail and the Candlebark Conservation Area in the Templewtow muncipality.

Nearby is Lower Eltham Park and the Miniature Railway.

The Family Nature Trail, follows the Diamond Creek Valley.

I visisted this interesting area on Monday aftrnoon July 20, 2009, completing a 4 km hike which took me over the bridge, along the long boardwalk on the Lower Yarra Trail, through the Candlebark Conservation Area forest, around Lenister Farm Wetland, and along the Family Nature Trail.

Sadly, the Wetland was completely dry, due to the extended drought, but there were good views of the Yarra.
