On Monday afternoon August 30, 2010, I went over to Warrandyte.
Warrandyte was founded as a Victorian town located in the once gold-rich rolling hills east of Melbourne, Victoria, and is now on the north-eastern boundary of suburban Melbourne.
The Yarra River is adjacent to the main street - Yarra St.
Gold was first discovered in the town in 1851 and together with Victorian towns like Bendigo and Ballarat, led the way in gold discoveries during the Victorian gold rush.
Today Warrandyte retains much of its past in its surviving buildings of the Colonial period.
Thee pictures show some surviving heritage buildings, and I've included some historical images taken in the early 1900s.
My exploration was a 2 km circuit walk, starting an Yarra St.
