Trip classification – River Trip

Description -  The Upper Yara River Flows parallel to the Warburton/Woods Point Highway for 35 km and is very accessible despite steep banks at some localities Flows through forest with clear water and extensive, often turbulent rapids. Channel width is 4-16 m with pools to 170 cm deep. Gravel, rubble and boulder substrate.

The Murrindindi is a tributary to the Yea River but is a small clear freestone stream, unlike the sandy discoloured river it flows into.  Rising in the Toolangi range the Murrindindi cascades through tight forest and a significant waterfall in the upper reaches, then slows as it makes its way to the Yea River flowing through camp grounds and open paddocks.  It’s only a little over an hour from the club rooms.

There are numerous access points at bridges, camp grounds and where the road hugs the river’s edge, see the attached maps.
