Welcome to Warburton....
In our opinion the urban sprawl of Melbourne ends well before you reach Warburton, but is only just over an hour’s drive from its centre. It can also be reached by train to Lilydale linking a frequent and regular bus service to Warburton.
Warburton sits astride the Yarra River approximately 20 kms from the Upper Yarra Dam (well worth a visit). Walks criss-cross the river or why not take a dip? For other walks the choice is endless ranging from a 15 minute stroll to an all day hike. The Warburton Bicycle Trail “Warby Trail” from Lillydale to Warburton was the old railway line and is now well used by both cyclists and walkers.
Should you want to 'ruin' a good walk try the inexpensive and superb local golf course (club and cart hire available). There are also tennis courts, a bowling green and a sports arena. For those who prefer a swimming pool rather than the Yarra, a ten minute drive to Yarra Junction will answer this need.
There are numerous cafes/restaurants and shops and the township is well served with excellent produce from the bakery, butcher and IGA store.
Within half an hour’s drive you can reach the summit of Donna Buang, visit the cellar doors of several excellent wineries and restaurants, take a trip on Puffing Billy, go to the Races at Healesville, the Market at Yarra Glen, take a picnic to the Lotus Gardens in Yarra Junction and or merely enjoy a scenic drive through the wooded hills and rolling countryside.
