WARRANDYTE GREENS

Warrandyte is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 24 km north-east of Melbourne's Central Business District. Its local government area is the City of Manningham. At the 2011 Census, Warrandyte had a population of 5,520.

Warrandyte is bounded in the west by the Mullum Mullum Creek and Target Road, in the north by the Yarra River, in the east by Jumping Creek and Anzac Road, and in the south by an irregular line from Reynolds Road, north of Donvale, Park Orchards and Warrandyte South.

Warrandyte was founded as a Victorian town, located in the once gold-rich rolling hills east of Melbourne, and is now on the north-eastern boundary of suburban Melbourne. Gold was first discovered in the town in 1851 and together, with towns like Bendigo and Ballarat, led the way in gold discoveries during the Victorian gold rush.

  4. What beautiful intense colors in these photos. The one of the trees with the one of the left leaning to the right is by far my favorite.

  7. Great photos Nick. I really like the 2nd one looking up at the sky through the Gum Trees & the Fern really pops out from the darker background. I never would've thought of taking a photo of Dandelions, we get lots in our lawn & I usually just mow them. Most photos I've taken the last couple of weeks since getting my new Nikon DSLR have been around our yard or just in town. I need to get out the bush with it.
