Longridge Park, in the middle of the conservation area of the Yarra Valley parklands, offers a quiet space beside the Yarra River. The river flats are perfect for a weekend camping retreat with friends and family in a beautiful woodland setting.
Aptly named, the long ridge through this park offers spectacular and breathtaking views of the Yarra River and surrounds. Eastern Grey Kangaroos are frequently seen in the area and a quiet visitor may also spot platypus playing in the river. Cushioned between the Yarra River and the surrounding slopes, the river flats have been established as the perfect camping retreat.
NOTE: Please contact Parks Victoria's Warrandyte office on 9844 2659 to obtain the access gate code. The code will be routinely changed for security. Please ensure the gate is kept closed at all times.
