Warrandyte State Park

The closest state park to Melbourne, Warrandyte is a haven for picnickers, bushwalkers, canoeists, birdwatchers and those who enjoy peace and solitude.

The lightly wooded landscape is dominated by the Yarra River as it winds through the Warrandyte Gorge. The hills around Warrandyte have a distinctive bluish-green hue, typical of the Red Box foliage common in the area. Things to do – The clear light and peace and silence of the bush have always been a source of inspiration to artists, writers and people who wish to contemplate nature. – Picnicking, bushwalking, swimming, bird-watching, fishing, exploring forgotten goldfields, nature walks and photography are popular. – So is canoeing on the Yarra River, but sufficient time must be allowed for this activity – the journey by canoe from the canoe access ramp at Wittons Reserve (Mount Lofty) to Jumping Creek Reserve is about six hours. – Horse riding is permitted along designated trails, and gold panning is allowed in Andersons Creek. – Abseiling and rock climbing are permitted at Whipstick Gully Quarry by arrangement with the senior ranger.
