It is of several hectares and is heavily vegetated with both tall gums and dense smaller undergrowth.
The main walking track is circular, mostly around the perimeter of the bush. The track is wide and compacted but some sections are very narrow and rough, definitely not wheelchair terrain. The circuit walk distance is just under two kilometres.
I was there on a weekday and although there were two other cars in the car park I saw no one. Although some of the path borders houses and it was very quiet. Solitude, I would describe it as.
The solitude was broken at one point by the soothing sound of flowing water as the Yarra River came into view. It was fast flowing over a rapids area. Unfortunately, because of the steep bank through bush and the fact that I can't swim, I was unable to photograph the rapids.
The area was part of the Warrandyte goldfields in the 1880s and evidence of mining is still evident in places with several large depressions where the earth was dugout. Disappointedly rubbish had been dumped in some of them.
Along the western side of the park, a large rusting boiler is fenced off. It was used to generate steam to power some of the mining equipment. Some gold was discovered, but not enough to make the ventures economical.
