Warburton

Lined with gorgeous trees and numerous parks, the Warburton section of the Yarra Valley is a great destination for families and couples alike.

With the 3 km Yarra River Walk meandering through the town itself before swinging past a number of river crossings such as Story Reserve’s famous swing bridge, the region has much to offer any visitor.

For those who are interested in a longer walk or ride, Warburton is at one end of the well-known Lilydale-Warburton trail, a 38 km track modelled closely on the old railway line.

Take this opportunity to see some of Victoria’s most picturesque countryside whether it be via bike, horse or even on foot.

There are car park, picnic and even horse facilities located along the trail to ensure that the adventurous types are able to stop and enjoy the scenery.

Other scenic options for visitors include La La Falls and Mt Donna Buang, with both locations providing visitors with stunning views in the midst of lush forest.

TrailRider all-terrain wheelchairs are available from the Warburton Waterwheel. The TrailRider is an all-terrain wheelchair which allows visitors and community members with mobility impairments to explore the beautiful Dandenongs and Yarra Valley. For more informaion on the TrailRider all-terrain wheelchair, see the Yarra Ranges Council website.
