Melbourne Day Walks

Blue Tongue Bend

March 27th, 2011 at 11:31

Length: 3.83 km (shortened after not going through the overgrown Nature walk full of spider webs)

Time taken: 1 hour, 20 minutes (including breaks for pictures)

Grade: Easy

Climb: 53 metres

I walked this alone which in retrospect wasn’t a great idea, but beside a run in with spiders in the ‘Nature walk’ it was a pleasant walk. The walk follows the Yarra River up to what is known as Blue Tongue Bend, which is an unexceptional bend in the river. However the bushy scenery makes this walk worthwhile.

I found this sign amusing... mostly because it was upside down.

A gorgeous log

The Blue Tongue Bend. (Yes this is it.)

Another nice log

The track back was a wide management road for the most part.
