We cycled the O’Shannassy Trail from the car park at Yuonga Road to the picnic ground at Dee Road return. The track is very easy to ride on for all ages and virtually has no hills as it follows the old aqueduct. It’s mostly shaded,...More

The trail is along the side of a disused aquaduct and as such is very flat in most parts. It offers some mighty views of the Yarra Valley and is something that would be on the top of my list of things to see while...More

Nicer scenery and fewer crowds than on the Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail, we only saw a handful of people on our 10 km walk. And not so well suited for bikes so we didn't see any of them. If you're on foot it's a...More

The trail is next to an old aqueduct which makes it perfectly level in most parts and therefore a very easy walk. There are beautiful views of Australian bush and rainforest and in parts you get beautiful sky high views of the Yarra Valley. Excellent...More

You can access the old o'shannassy aqueduct at a number of places and walk for a short, medium or long walk. It is not a circular walk so you need to walk one direction and then turn around to return to your car, if that's...More

This trail is beautiful! Nice and flat and suitable for running or walking. We ended up turning back after a few kms to get back to the car as it does not loop back around. Recommended for any ages.

A beautifull and easy walk trail. Spectacular views of Yarra Valley. Bear in mind that there are no toilets in the area and and no loop tracks.

We moved to this part of the world three years ago but have only recently started to explore this trail, sometimes cycling, sometimes walking. The most popular part of the track, between Dee Rd, Millgrove and Yuonga Rd, Warburton is better groomed than other sections...More
