The O’Shannassy Aqueduct trail is a 30 kilometre walking and bike riding trail from East Warburton to Don Valley in the Upper Yarra Valley.
The trail runs in parallel with the Warburton Rail Trail, however, the O’Shannassy Trail is set into the mountain ranges, and therefore provides a different perspective to the environment. Surrounded by tall trees, and ferns, the trail follows the historic open channelled O’Shannassy Aqueduct, and allows for spectacular views of the Yarra Valley. As the trail follows the Aqueduct, it means the track is on a gentle grade, so it is perfect for people of all levels of fitness.
The easiest way to access the trail is from the Dee Road Carpark in Millgrove. This also provides a beautiful view of the valley. There are a number of opportunities to Step-On and Step-Off the trail, to allow for shorter walks.
