From Wittons Reserve car park and picnic area at the end of Reserve Road, Wonga Park, this circuit walk is rich with picnic spots, lookouts, and almost always kangaroos. Head north to reach the Wayne Track where you turn right. Follow the Yarra River as it flows slowly to reach the top of Mount Lofty for great views. 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.
