Warrandyte Park Loop

We went to Warrandyte State Park on Saturday. We’ve been there before but we never combined several walks in a loop.

The walk starts from the car park next to the Yarra River.

We saw some ducks.


The river was still pretty full after the recent flood in October 2022.

We walked on the quiet Till Drive to reach the Black Flat.

The Black Flat is a nice forest with access to the Yarra River.

The circuit around Black Flat took us about 20 minutes. After that we returned back to the Yarra Street. We had to walk along this busy road. Thankfully it was just a short section and there was a separate trail.

After stressful road crossing (there were no traffic lights nearby) we entered Warrandyte State Park.

We had to cross a small creek on the stones in order to reach the Gold Memorial.

The Gold Memorial is just a cairn.

Old gold mines. We saw them before so we didn’t spend time examining them this time.

There were quite steep sections towards the end of the walk. Also both I and my daughter got hay fever attack.

It took us 2 and half hours to complete this walk. We finished it with a well-deserved meal at the Grand Hotel Warrandyte.

Overall, it’s a great varied walk with river views, gum tree forest and mining history.
