Reserve Road, Wonga Park
Melway reference: 24 K6
Wittons Reserve is a large reserve (4.83ha) located along the Yarra River between areas of the Warrandyte State Park. It has already been identified as a major recreation activity node. It also is an important conservation area because of the remnant vegetation on the site and its wildlife corridor function.
The Reserve and the State Park are popular for many outdoor activities including canoeing, swimming, bush walking and picnicking. There is also a small playspace consisting of a swing set only. The canoe launch provides a very popular canoeing/kayaking day trip from Homestead Road to Wittons Reserve. The popular walk to Mt Lofty features spectacular views and the chance to see such wildlife as kangaroos and koalas.
