Warrandyte State Park Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful park. Great for small hikes. Fair few incline hills. Ideal for moderate/intermediate walkers. Great for natural wildlife viewing. Plenty of bird life and kangaroos roaming around. Great canoeing and kayaking spot. Plenty of water flowing in the Winter/Spring season
This state park is easily accessed and is a great option to cool off on a hot summer’s day. You can go for a swim in the river and there areas where you can spread a picnic blanket and spend an afternoon there. This is also a good place to go for a hike through the forest and along the riverbank to catch a glimpse of Koalas on the treetops if you’re lucky!
Lovely walk along the Yarra river. Very dog friendly. Dogs can be off lead as long as they are social.Most dogs walking there are very social. Remember the doggie bags and pick up after your dog. Some good cafes there to have lunch or a coffee. There is a bottom car park along the river. Entry near the bridge.
Lack of signage and maps was a bit of a problem. Seemed like there was more staff than visitors when I visited. There is a place for kangaroo viewing, with dozens roaming around at any given time unless raining. Lack of washrooms and road that is a bit small were the only glaring problems.
Love the fact, we can still have fire. Kookaburras are a bit aggressive. Don't feed them or leave food around. Lovely natural environment close to home.
