Getting There

Where do we start?: Yuonga Road car-park.
How do we get to the start?: Drive to Warburton via the Maroondah and Warburton Highways. At Launching Place turn north on Don Road and continue to the Ewarts Road/Don Road car park at the end of the Aqueduct Walk. Leave a car/s at Don Road to enable drivers to retrieve their cars from Yuonga Road car park. Because of its size, leave as few cars as possible at Yuonga Road car park.

Retrace route (south) to Warburton Highway and turn left (east) to Warburton. From Warburton drive a short way up the Donna Buang Road and just past the hospital turn left up Yuonga Road which is followed to the end and a small carpark.
