Hard track
The Pound Bend Loop, Warrandyte, starts near the car park at the end of Everard Road, looping around the Pound Bend Reserve via the Tank Track, along the Yarra River. Enjoy this simple and easy loop walk through the bush, with fantastic views of the Yarra River along the way. There are plenty of little tracks that veer off the main one, that allow you to walk closer to the water. A variety of birds can be spotted on this walk, as well as kangaroos and echidnas. Towards the end of the walk, there’s a steep stair climb, and there are some rocky sections along the way, which can be slightly challenging. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
