The Mill and Boroondara is a 15.7km, grade 4 circuit hike, located in Murrindindi Scenic Reserve, Victoria. The hike should take approximately 5hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

The The Mill and Boroondara hike commences at the suspension bridge carpark. Crossing the Suspension Bridge located at the northern end of Murrindindi Scenic Reserve, turn left and follow Mill Track up to Jacksons Road. The road forms part of a loop that leads to the Jackson Road carpark and Wilhelmina Falls.

  1. Quite curious to do this hike. I’ve done very short walks in the area and I noticed some areas are regenerating from the bushfires, whereas some escaped. I think this is in the bushfire impacted area (based on the photo as well)? Or does it have some parts that escaped the bushfires?
