Warrandyte River Reserve is a great place to explore with many activities and places of interest to enjoy. Fishing, swimming, paddling, local history, walking, picnics and barbecues are all popular at Warrandyte.
The fenced Federation playground gives the nod to Warrandyte's gold rush past with delightful gold train and trailer, a mineshaft (slide) and tunnels. Set on the picturesque banks of the Yarra River and just a stone’s throw from the Warrandyte Bakery, this playground is a winner with both children and families.
The shade sail and picnic shelter make this playground an option for all year round picnics and outdoor play
